Summer Sangria

Two words:  Drink this.

Summer Sangria
adapted from Ezra Pound Cake who got it from Bon Appetit

(Headnote from Ezra Pound Cake:  "Feel free to use whatever fresh fruit you have on hand – strawberries, pineapple, mangoes, blackberries, chopped green apple, etc. – as long as you include at least one citrus fruit.")

    * 1 750-ml bottle of chilled White Zinfandel (**you may use the cheap stuff.  Although, come to think of it - is there such thing as expensive white zin?)
    * 1/2 cup peach schnapps
    * 2 tablespoons triple sec
    * 2 cinnamon sticks, broken in half
    * 1 lemon, sliced
    * 1 orange, sliced
    * 1 peach, sliced into wedges
    * 1 can of Sprite or whatever lemon lime soda you have handy.
    * Ice cubes

1. Mix the liquor, the fruit and cinnamon sticks in a large pitcher. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend.

2. Pour in soda.  Fill 6 wineglasses with ice cubes. Pour sangria over ice and serve.
