I made this awhile back when we had some friends over for a BBQ.  I just have not had a chance to share it.  I am not much of a wine fan BUT I do love Sangria!  And this was especially good since I got to control the amounts of what went in. i.e. a little more liquor and a little less wine!

1 large orange
2 ripe peaches
2 cups strawberries 
1 cup raspberries
1/4-1/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup Chambord
1/4 cup citrus or orange vodka
1 bottle Rose wine
1 1/2 cups ginger ale

For serving: Ice (if preferred), orange slices, or fresh raspberries

First wash all the fruits well.  Cut all the fruits into small slices except leave the raspberries whole. Place all the fruits in a large bowl, and add the sugar, triple sec, and vodka.  Mix the fruit well, pressing it down in the bowl so it is mostly covered by the sugar/alcohol mixture.  Soak the fruit, mixing occasionally, for at least 1 hour, but if you can soak it for 2-3 hours it will be even better. 

To mix up the sangria, add the bottle of Rose wine, and the ginger ale to a large bowl or drink dispenser, then stir in the fruit and alcohol.  Mix well, and chill before serving.  If you like, serve with ice, in glasses garnished with orange slices or fresh raspberries.

Mine was nice and chilled so I did not need ice.  Enjoy!
