Okay, so this is where I think there was a meeting of the minds in the Sangria tasting. Making a simple syrup with the classic citrus fruits from a Sangria and using the sugared fruits in the Sangria. Now this was definitely a little more time consuming but I think it is worth it.

Simple Syrup:
1 Lime Slices
1 Lemons Sliced
1 Orange Sliced
2 1/2 Cups of Sugar

In a saucepan mix all ingredients together until sugar has completely dissolved.


Fruits from Syrup
1/3 Cup of Cognac
1/3 Cup of Simple Syrup
1 12 oz Can of Lemon/Lime Seltzer Water
3 Cups of White Wine

Remove the fruits from the pan and place in a pitcher, and add the rest of the ingredients except the Seltzer Water. Let stand for at least 3 hours in a refrigerator and before serving add the Seltzer Water and serve over a glass of ice.
