Ryan's Sangria

My husband is a genius with computers but his talents also reveal themselves in the kitchen.  I present you with the BEST Sangria recipe on the planet.  Sorry, no pic.

1 bottle of red wine
1 lemon juiced
1 orange juiced
1 lime juiced
2 Tbsp sugar
splash of OJ
2 shots Gin
2 shots Peach Brandy
1 c sliced strawberries
1 can diced pineapples
1/3 c coconut milk
2 Tbsp vanilla extract or 1 vanilla bean sliced in half
1 (2 liter)  bottle ginger ale ( I buy Fever Tree but buy enough to make 2 liters)

Mix all alcohol, juices, and fruit slices together. Place in the sun in a closed jar for 3 to 5 days. Strain liquid from solids.  Discard solids.  Add coconut milk and ginger ale. Serve over ice.

This recipe is easily doubled or tripled if you'd like.  It's really amazing what fermentation does to this drink.
