Poor Girl Sangria. Fast and cheap sangria: 2 bottles – cheap (but not gross) dry red wine, I usually go with Trader Joes. 1.5 ounces or so of Brandy. 1 can of 7 Up; use 7 up, it’s sweeter than Sprite. 1 ounce of O.J. 2 apples cut up small. 2 oranges cut up small. 1 lemon cut up. 1 lime cut up. Note: it gets better the longer it sits, but you can drink it just like that.
