For years whenever I made sangria, I used an old recipe that included red wine, vodka, and lots of citrus fruit, which could be left in the refrigerator for days at a time.  It only got better as it aged.  Over the last few years, I have discovered that most people will drink just about any fruity sangria served, and most of the time prefer it over wine.  I have tried everything from peach to passion fruit, all successfully, but this is one I particularly like.


Halve one cup fresh strawberries and add to 1/2 cup whole blackberries, one cup raspberries and one lemon (sliced) in a large pitcher.  Stir in 3/4 cup lemonade concentrate thawed and 1/2 cup lemon flavored liqueur (I use Limoncello from Italy).  Cover and refrigerate for 8 to 24 hours.  Just before serving, stir in 2 bottles light sparkling wine and stir well.  Serve over ice and garnish with a lemon twist.  Makes 8 to 10 servings.
