8 pieces of assorted stone fruit
½ to 1 piece of citrus (depending on the acidity)
Stone fruit simple syrup
1 750 ml bottle of dry red, white or sparkling wine
Cut your fruit and place in pitcher. Add wine and simple syrup, a little at a time to achieve your Ideal level of sweetness. This way, your sangria tastes fruity, but your fruit is firm and edible, not mushy and booze soaked. Chill (with ice or in the fridge) and enjoy. REMEMBER as drinks (or ice cream or cookies or anything) get colder, you taste less of their sweetness!
