My first summertime fav is Sangria and I truly have the BEST recipe. I've thrown many a get-together where people have raved about this fabulous concoction, so give it a try and let me know what you think! Enjoy!
1 (750 milliliter) bottle sangria wine
1/2 cup sour apple schnapps
1/2 cup rum (optional, but recommended)
1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
1 cup halved seedless grapes
1 lime (or lemon), sliced
1. Stir together the wine, schnapps, rum, strawberries and grapes in a large serving pitcher. Chill for at least one hour before serving.
2. Garnish with lime or lemon slices -- I prefer lime.
3. Serve and enjoy!
