The refreshing combination of fresh fruit, wine and fizzy soda is the perfect beverage for summertime entertaining. Before you grill your food, char orange and lime slices on the grill to add extra depth and sweetness to this sangria. Photo credit: Sydney Kramer from Crepes of Wrath.
Cut ends off oranges and limes then cut fruit crosswise into 1/2-inch thick slices. Dip cut sides of fruit into sugar. Grill fruit slices over medium heat 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly charred, turning occasionally.
Mix wine, orange juice, liqueur, cinnamon sticks and grilled fruit in large pitcher until well blended. Stir in sugar to taste, if desired.
Refrigerate at least 2 hours or until ready to serve. Just before serving, stir in soda and ice.
