1 orange, cut into 1/8-inch slices
1 cup sugar
1 bottle dry white wine
1 bottle dry red wine
Sliced peaches, grapes, strawberries, or other seasonal fruit, (optional)
Gin, Grand Marnier, or brandy to taste, (optional)
Combine the orange, lemon, sugar and wines in a large glass bowl and stir for several minutes. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 to 6 hours, or overnight. Add the optional fruits and spirits, if you like. Serve over ice or, just before serving, place some ice cubes in the punch bowl.
Serving Suggestion: Garnish each glass with fruit kabobs (pineapple chunks, maraschino cherries, lemon, lime or orange wedges), if desired. This makes a very festive presentation, especially nice if you are serving Sangria for a party.
