Sour Apple Sangria

When on the hunt for a way to cool off and use a bottle of Mundet Manzana Verde, I came up with the perfect answer in this light, fruity Sangria that is packed with bright notes of sour apple and citrus.  Serve over ice whilst sitting in the hot sun.
Sour Apple Sangria
from the kitchen of girlichef
(makes ~1200-1500 mL)

1 (750 mL) bottle Pinot Grigio
(or even a fruity Sauvignon Blanc...choose something with notes of green apple & pear or tropical fruits)
1 - 2 (355 mL) bottles Mundet Manzana Verde (Green Apple flavored soda)
1 fat lemon, sliced in thin rounds
2 small limes, sliced in thin rounds
1-2 Granny Smith apples, cored & sliced in thin rounds, to taste
Place fruit in the bottom of a pitcher, or other type of jar large enough to hold everything.  Pour in the wine and a bottle of the soda.  Taste and add more soda, if you like.  Add a few handfuls of ice.  Pour into glasses and serve cold.
Care to join me for a pitcher?

What a perfect way to beat the heat! Tangy and tart and deliciously boozy. And I love the green stemware!
