Very Festive Sangria, Member Wolly_Bully

THE sangria for the July 4th holiday - colorful, fun, and different. A ""must do"" at your next July 4th, Memorial Day, or Vet's Day gathering. The only drawback: too sweet. Reduce sugar to 1/4 cup (at most), none if using a sweet wine. Also, a terrible waste of Limoncello. Recommend using concentrated lemon juice instead. Enjoy!!
