I know  Spanish wine-based cocktail Sangria is extremely delicious and refreshing but I just found out how easy it is to make.  Sangria is served throughout Spain and Portugal during summer. Did you know? Sangria is named after the Portuguese word for “blood” – “sangue” because of its typical dark-red color. Summer punches are perfect!!! Drinks anyone?

1 bottle of pinot noir
¼ cup brandy
¼ cup Grand Marnier
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
