This version of sangria take only seconds to make and requires only a handful of ingredients: lemons, oranges, sugar, inexpensive wine, and triple sec. Although this recipe takes seconds to make, it’s extremely important to let the sangria sit before drinking, at least two hours. A full eight hours is best and will give the sangria the best flavor.

Yield: Serves 4

2 tablespoons Triple Sec
1 (750-ml.) bottle fruity white wine (a medium-bodied Pinot Grigio or an un-oaked Chardonnay), chilled
