Traditional Foolproof Sangria!

A little bit of this, a little bit of's best to make sangria by taste.

We don't really measure out any of the ingredients.  
We eyeball everything and taste as we go...lots of tasting.
Use this recipe as a guide, but don't be afraid to stray from the path!

1 bottle of cheap chilled dry red wine
1/2 cup triple sec
1 cup orange juice
2 cups Sprite
cubed apples and oranges

In a large pitcher, combine wine, triple sec, orange juice and Sprite.
Refrigerate.  The longer it chills the better!
An hour or so before serving add the fruit.

We like to top off each glass with Sprite for a little fizz.
