Easy Sangria

I love me some Emeril Lagasse, I don’t think I ever missed an episode of his live show that use to be on the Food Network.

Since summer is the time for drinking all manner of cool drinks his recipe for Sangria is easy and cheap to make and it’s delish. Dust off your summer glassware and fill em’ up.
