Refreshing faux sangria by Mama Steph

2 liter bottle ginger ale, regular or diet (may not need it all) 2 cups fruit juice (white or red grape, cranberry, etc.) 1 cup orange juice

Sliced fresh fruit:

Use a lot of fruit for this, to really give your sangria a fabulous flavor and more vitamins. Wash your fruit, and do not peel it. Just slice and remove seeds or pits. I used:

2 peaches, sliced 2 oranges, sliced 2 plums, sliced 2 large lemons, sliced 2 large limes, sliced

You could also use sliced grapes, chunks of pineapple, apple slices, etc.

Place the sliced fruit in a large container. I use glass because it's so beautiful to look at! Pour the juices over the fruit, then fill with the ginger ale to top of container. Cover and chill for at least three hours. But the longer, the better.
