  • 12 cup Sprite (or 7-Up)
  • 1 slice lemon

I loved this! It is so simple, and light and refreshing! I tried it with the lemon,, and I also tried it with a squeeze of orange and that is really good too. This one is a real winner. Made for ZWT 8 Family Picks

I love Sangria, but this is so much easier to make! Especially when you just want one glass.
