Cooking with Banshee: Party Punch Sangria

I recently conducted a poll about this blog's content on the Banshee Sports Facebook page.  While the final results require a little deeper analysis, one thing was clear.  The readers like Cooking with Banshee posts.  I strive to give the public what they want, so here is a little something I whipped up over the holidays.

My mom does not really fancy the taste of alcohol, so for New Years Eve, I decided to go with this sweet and festive beverage.  This drink isn't just tasty.  It's also pretty.  And, yes, I realize that adding the word "punch" to a sangria recipe is redundant, but it just seemed more fun that way.

Party Punch Sangria.

Ingredients:
1 bottle Shiraz
1 lemon, cut into wedges
1 lime, cut into wedges
1 orange, cut into wedges
2 Tbs sugar
Splash of orange juice
4 shots triple sec
1 small can of diced pineapples with juice
1 cup frozen strawberries
4 cups ginger ale

Directions:
You need a very large pitcher for this.  Pour the wine into the pitcher.  Squeeze the juice from all the fruit wedges into the pitcher.  Drop the wedges in.  Try to keep out the seeds.  Add the sugar, orange juice, triple sec and can of pineapples.  Stir.  Chill overnight.  Just before serving, add the ginger ale and frozen strawberries.  Serve over ice.

Enjoy!
