White Sangria

Yesterday, I was very happy to be able to spend the day with my dear friends Rebecca and Jesse. I always want to cook for them and they're so great at wanting to help too. So between getting a little too red by the pool and deveining shrimp (gross!!), we mixed together a scrumptous white sangria from the Paula Dean July/August magazine.

1 bottle dry white wine (but we used a Niagra wine, which is sweet)
1 cup apple juice
1/2 cup orange-flavored liqueur (Cointreau)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
24 oz. lemon-lime soda
1/2 lemon sliced (we used a whole)
1/2 lime sliced (we used a whole)
1/2 granny smith apple sliced (we used a whole)

In a large pictcher, combine all ingredients except soda. Let sit in the refrigerator for an hour. Add soda right before serving with lots of ice!

A few glasses of this is a perfect afternoon treat!
