This recipe brought me back to my youth when my BF (DH) and I use to go to this local tavern that had sangria in a pitcher with fruit! We ate a whole pizza pie and drank the pitcher of sangria and it was to die for. This recipe is exactly like it! Thanks for the memories! Made for Veg 'N Swap tag.

Sangria lovers will want to be making this one! Years back I was given a starter for brandied fruit which made for a great topping on adult desserts. Having long lost the stater I couldn't resist giving Fruit Marinated in Sangria a try. Love it! See endless possibilities for the fruit combinations. Makes for a great summer recipe and so a repeatable. Thank you for sharing.
