Winter Sangria

This is our twist on the Classic Sangria drink.  This is great for your next Holiday Party!  We made it for Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit!!
Here is what you need...
1 bottle of sweet red wine, 1 cup triple sec, 1 cup apple juice, 3 oranges, 1 pear, 1 lemon, a big squeeze of agave nectar, a few shakes of allspice, cinnamon and cloves.  **If you don't have agave nectar you can add 1/4 cup sugar to sweeten.
Now pour the wine, triple sec, apple juice and agave nectar into a pitcher or punch bowl.  Juice two of the oranges.
Cut the 3rd orange, pear and lemon.
Now add all the fruit to the wine mixture and finally add all the spices (I did not measure, but I would guess about 1/2 tsp of each).
 After mixing everything together, put it in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours.  Now drink up!!
You can also double or triple this recipe for a crowd!  Happy Holidays:)
