Diabetes Friendly Red Sangria
(from DiabetesDaily.com) A couple months ago, I posted a great recipe in my Simply Cooking blog for white sangria. But sometimes you’re in the mood for red! This recipe is a great way to enjoy yourself on a hot summer’s day, but will keep your blood sugars in normal range.
1 bottle inexpensive, red Spanish wine
1 orange, sliced
1 lemon, sliced
1 peach, pitted and sliced
1/4 cup Cointreau, or orange liquor
2 packets, Stevia, Splenda, or artificial sweetener of your choice
1/2 liter diet 7-Up
Combine all ingredients except for the 7-Up in a pitcher and stir. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight. Right before serving, add the 7-Up.
