Sangria

Cheaper than bottled water in many cases, we made it a point to sample the Sangria as we traversed Spain.  With dinner at the B & B in the outskirts of Madrid, we enjoyed a homemade version of Sangria.

While dining 'al fresco', at lunch or dinner, we enjoyed pitchers of chilled Sangria, with fresh orange slices floating in the red wine.  Definitely the way to savor Spain.

Remedios, our hostess in Madrid, graciously shared her recipe. 
Sangria:
1 orange, peeled & juiced
1 lemon, peeled & juiced
1 c. sugar
pinch cinnamon
red wine (approx. 1 liter)
sparkling lemonade (approx. 1 c.)
approx. 1/2 c. total of gin, brandy, & vermouth
Mix it all together, and enjoy!
Measurements are loose!  It's all to taste... and it tastes best in Spain!

Now if I only liked wine.
It does sound delicious.
