Sangria de Guayaba

INGREDIENTS

1 Cup Strawberry’s, quartered

1 Cup Red Grapes

1 Red Delicious Apple, Chopped

1 Cup Fresh Pineapple Chunks

1 Fresh Guayaba ,pink flesh, peeled & quartered

1/2 Cup  granulated sugar

1  Cup Brandy (preferably Felipe Segundo)

3/4 Cup Triple Sec

1 liter Carlo Rosi Burgundy wine (or any red wine will do)

1/2 Cup Orange Juice

2 Cups ice

12 oz 7 UP (or any lemon lime soda)

SERVES 4

1.  IN A LARGE SANGRIA PITCHER, ADD ALL OF THE FRUIT, SUGAR AND LIQUORS.         WITH A WOODEN SPOON, MIX AND CRUSH THE FRUIT A BIT TO MAceRATE.   ADD     THE WINE AND ORANGE JUICE, MIX WELL.

2. AT THIS POINT IF YOU WANT TO ADD ICE TO THE PITCHER, DO SO.  I ONLY ADD         ICE TO THE PITCHER IF I’M SERVING THE ENTIRE THING RIGHT AWAY TO                   PREVENT IT FROM GETTING WATERY.   I LIKE TO ADD THE ICE TO THE                       INDIVIDUAL GLASSES INSTEAD.

3. TOP OFF WITH SODA, BUT ONLY STIR ONCE SOFTLY.

4.  SERVE & ENJOY

* Guayaba is a tropical fruit that is not easy to find.  It can be substituted with white flesh guayaba  or omitted altogether.
