Personal, individually-portioned sangrias made and served in the very same jar. Strawberries, blackberries, lemons, and apples soak in white wine and rum - then you simply pull the jars out of the fridge, add ice and soda, plop in a straw, and hand 'em out. Your next party just got loads easier.
Yield: 8individual sangrias
1applecored and sliced (any kind)
1cupstrawberrieshulled and sliced lengthwise
1750 ml bottle white wine (a dry-ish white wine is best – I like Sauvignon Blanc) (about 1/2 cup per jar)
½cupwhite rumdivided (1 tablespoon per jar)
Approx. 4 cups lemon-lime soda
8 16-ouncepint mason jars with lids and rims
Divide lemon slices among the eight jars, then the apples, then the strawberries and blackberries.
Pour the wine (1/2 cup each) and rum (1 tablespoon each) into each jar, over the fruit.
Cover each jar with a lid and screw shut.
Place in the refrigerator for 4 – 5 hours, or up to 12 hours.
Remove from refrigerator. Add ice and pour lemon-lime soda to the top of the jar. Plop in a straw and serve.
