for the wedding party, my friend and i made some yummy sangria. you could spike it with as much or as little rum as you wish. my favorite is the red. the secret is in the fruit (after you’ve mixed and marinated it).

sangria, tropical & red: mix wine, rum, juice and sugar; add fruit. stir and refrigerate overnight. serve cold. – serves a lotta people.
