Sometimes you don’t want to fuss with individual cocktails when entertaining.
Here’s a solution: Take five minutes and make sangria in the morning in a large pitcher and refrigerate until ready to serve. The flavors get better with a few hours to meld.
2 cups rose wine
2 cups red wine
2 cups peach juice
1/2 cup lime juice
1/3 cup orange liqueur
1/3 cup rum
1/2 cup superfine sugar
Stir until the sugar has dissolved.
No need to be picky about the wines. Use whatever you like, but don’t spend a fortune.
After refrigerating for several hours, serve over ice.
