Cherry-Limeade Sangria

This is the perfect drink for a hot summer evening or day, which ever you prefer. I served this with ribs and pulled pork and it went over well. The original recipe comes from www.recipegirl.com and I thought it needed some added sweetness, so that is where the simple syrup comes in. I would probably add some more cherry juice too, maybe another 1/2 cup or more. Give it a taste and do what tastes best for you. This will make about 20 servings and can be easily cut in half.

Cherry-Limeade Sangria

2 750ml bottles Sauvignon Blanc, chilled
4 cups prepared limeade, chilled
2 cups bottled cherry juice, chilled
1 1/2 cups vodka
1/2 cup simple syrup
3 medium limes, thinly sliced
3 handfuls of fresh cherries, pitted and halved
1 1-liter bottle club soda, chilled

In a large beverage dispenser or punch bowl, combine all ingredients except club soda several hours or overnight. Add club soda just before serving. Scoop fruit into wine glasses, add ice and sangria.
