Party Sangria
Prep time: 5 minutes — Chill time: 24 hours
1 bottle red wine (Cabernet Savignon, Merlot, Rioja, Zinfandel, Shiraz)
1 lemon cut into wedges
1 orange cut into wedges
1 lime cut into wedges
2 Tbsp sugar
Splash of orange juice or lemonade
2 shots gin or triple sec (optional)
1 cup raspberries or strawberries (fresh, thawed or frozen)
1 small can diced pineapple (with juice)
4 cups ginger ale
Pour wine into a large pitcher and squeeze the juice from the lemon, orange and lime wedges into the wine. Toss in the fruit wedges, leaving out seeds if possible. Add pineapple, sugar, orange juice, and gin or triple sec. Chill overnight.

Add ginger ale, berries, and ice just before serving. To serve immediately, use chilled red wine and pour over lots of ice. For the best flavor, refrigerate Sangria for 24 hours before serving.



Warm Spiced Cider Punch
4 cups apple cider or unsweetened apple juice
2-1/4 cups water
3/4 cup orange juice concentrate
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
3 whole cloves
2 cinnamon sticks
Orange slices and additional cinnamon sticks, optional
In a 3-qt. slow cooker, combine the apple cider, water, orange juice concentrate, nutmeg and ginger. Place cloves and cinnamon sticks on a double thickness of cheesecloth; bring up corners of cloth and tie with string to form a bag. Place bag in slow cooker.
Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until heated through. Remove and discard spice bag. Garnish with orange slices and additional cinnamon sticks if desired.

Mardi Gras Punch (preferably spiked!)
This festive punch combines the traditional Mardi Gras colors of green, representing faith, gold symbolizing power, and purple denoting justice. It’s equally delicious with or without the alcohol, just add more grape juice. Laissez les bon temps roulez!
1 ice ring (Note: Freeze one or more ice rings out of pineapple and/or grape juice — instead of water — to keep the punch from getting diluted as it melts.)
1 40 oz. bottle grape juice (more if you make an ice ring.)
1 48 oz. can pineapple juice (more if you make an ice ring.)
A 2-liter bottle of ginger ale
2 oranges
2 limes
1 fifth of vodka (optional)
Make ice rings in advance of the event.
Slice oranges and limes in thin rounds. Set aside. Place ice ring in bottom of punch bowl. Add juices, ginger ale, and (if desired) vodka. Float orange and lime slices on top and serve.
