Recipe for Blush Sangria

We love sangria. It is so easy to drink. This Blush Sangria is nice if you are having friends in for a light meal or just for appetizers. We often double or triple this recipe. It is not necessary to increase the quantity for the marinate. Sip carefully as it is so good it is easy to consume too much!
