Red, White and Blue Sangria

I always look forward to the summer holidays, because they mean lots of picnics and barbecues, and I always love an excuse to eat outside. Its are also a good chance to make patriotic food and drinks. This is the kind of drink that is great to make for a crowd, and could be made for Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, or really any nice summer day.

This recipe and other holiday themed drinks are on punchbowl.

-Strawberries, sliced
-Pineapple, cut into star shapes
-2 bottles dry white wine
-1 cup Triple Sec
-1/2 cup cherry rum
-1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
-1/2 cup agave syrup
Use a cookie cutter or a template to cut the pineapple into stars

Mix all ingredients together.
Chill for at least four hours to let the fruit infuse into the sangria and to allow the fruit to soak up the liquid.

We made this over the weekend at Becky's lake house and left it to sit in the fridge for over 12 hours throughout the day. I think this one gets better with time and can probably be made up to 24 hours ahead of time. This made about 10-12 servings and was a hit with everyone at the party.
