How To Make Amanda’s Sangria


1 (750 milliliter) bottle red wine
1/2 cup rum
1 lemon, sliced
1 orange, sliced in rounds
1 lime, sliced
1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced
1 apple, cored and sliced
9 whole cloves
1 liter lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage


In a large jar or pitcher combine wine and rum with sliced lemon, orange, lime, and strawberry. Push cloves into apples slices and add to mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight (the longer the better).

To serve, pour a tall glass half-full of wine mixture. Fill the rest of the glass with soda and stir gently. Remove cloves from apple slices and garnish drinks by spooning some marinated fruit into glass.
