Bing Cherry Sangria

This sangria really is good and it’s super easy to make. One of the things I love about it, well and all sangria’s, really is that you can adjust the strength to your liking, leave the booze out all together or if you’re making it for a crowd that may involve children then make it omitting the alcohol but have it set aside for the grown folks to spike. You could also (and this is probably a no-brainer) just make an adult batch and a kid batch. Totally up to you. Look at me trying to tell you how to throw your own party. Sheesh.

Sangria:
Pour the wine into a glass pitcher. Strain the cherry syrup into the wine, pressing on the solids to release any cherry juice. Squeeze the juice of 1 orange and 1 lime and add to the wine. Slice the remaining fruit into rounds or wedges (for garnish), and add half to the wine along with half the fresh cherries. Add ice and mineral water, to taste. Pour the sangria over glasses of ice, top each glass with a little more mineral water if desired; garnish with sliced fruit, cherries, and mint sprigs.
