Blood Orange Sangría

Becky Luigart-Stayner
Yield 16 servings (serving size: about 1 cup)
Any good-quality, fruity red wine works well in this cold sipper; a combination of pinot noir and Beaujolais is particularly good. The vermilion flesh of blood oranges (which come into season in December) is lovely. But if they're not available, substitute navel oranges.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sliced strawberries
  • 2 cups apple juice
  • 2/3 cup Triple Sec (orange-flavored liqueur)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 3 seedless blood oranges, each cut into 16 wedges
  • 2 (750-milliliter) bottles fruity red wine
  • 2 (3-inch) cinnamon sticks
  • 1 lemon, cut into 8 wedges
  • 1 lime, cut into 8 wedges
