FRUIT SANGRIA (Adapted from Martha Stewart)

2 ripe plums, pitted and cut into wedges
1 large Gala apple, cored and cut into 1/8-inch wedges
1 navel orange, thinly sliced crosswise, larger slices halved
6 ounces (1 1/2 cups) raspberries
1 cup vodka
2 bottles dry white wine, such as sauvignon blanc, chilled
1/4 cup superfine sugar
Yields 6 servings.

Combine plums, apple, orange, raspberries and vodka in a nonreactive bowl. Let stand, uncovered, at room temperature for 2 hours. Combine wine and sugar in a pitcher, and stir until sugar dissolves. Add fruit mixture, and stir gently to combine. Serve over ice.

***Note: I didn’t LOVE this sangria. It needed to be a bit sweeter and fruitier for my taste. All I could taste was the wine, so it basically was a wine cooler – not my fav. Perhaps if it marinates longer?
