Perfect Summer Sangria

A few years ago it seemed as if every glass of sangria I ordered was filled with wine and 7-Up.  I knew there had to be a better taste to this summery cocktail.  One hot summer evening along with one of my cocktail mixing friends we set off to make our own sangria and I think our confection was amazing.  Once the weather reaches summer temps we set off to make new versions.  Here is the latest and quite tasty!
 We start with a dry white - some times you can find whites that have a slight sparkling quality these are perfect!  The wine doesn't have to be a stellar bottle because it's just getting mixed.
Lots of fruit cut in bite size pieces.  This has a mixture of chopped peach, nectarine, strawberry, raspberry &  orange
Chopped herbs - it varries based on what is in my window box here we have mint and lemon balm
For a little sweetness some juice.  This has a bit Red Jacket Orchards strawberry apply juice.  Juice adds sweetness that compliments the wine but better than the 7-Up or Sprite.
Sometimes I top with a little seltzer, since this already had some bubbles from the wine we left this alone.  I also will freeze the berries and add them at the last minute to help the mix stay cool.
One of the best parts is if you use good fruit it's a nice treat at the end of the glass.
Mix together with a tray of ice & serve!!
