What does the Superbowl call for? Super Sangria, of course!!! As anyone who’s made Sangria knows, it’s never the same twice. Today’s recipe is below and it is Mmmm, Mmmm, Goooood!

– 1 can halved pears, NOT drained (15 oz)
– 20 oz apple juice
– 2 TBS lemon juice
– 1/2 cup powdered sugar
-Pour wine into a large pitcher (I used a 2 liter pitcher and it all just barely fit)

– Squeeze lime juice from quartered limes into pitcher
– Add pears and pear juice
– Add apple juice
