Sangria is known as the summer drink of choice in Spain and Portugal. This drink is a party favorite because it can be prepared up to 5 hours in advance—plenty of time to get everything ready and mingle with guests!
2 (750 ml) bottles red wine
3 cups apricot nectar
2 small oranges, halved through stem end and cut lengthwise into thin slices
2 lemons, halved through stem end and cut lengthwise into thin slices
2 plums, halved through stem end, pitted and thinly sliced lengthwise
10 green grapes, halved lengthwise
3 cups plain seltzer or club soda
Ice cubes for serving
How to Make It
Stir together wine, apricot nectar, oranges and lemons in a pitcher. (This may be prepared up to 5 hours ahead; keep covered at room temperature.)
To serve, add plums and grapes, stir in seltzer, and pour sangria over ice in glasses.
