Sangria by the Pros
Loved this Sangria, but I would make one or two suggestions. I usually use Carl Rossi wine when making sangria simply because I find the fruit balances out the bitterness of the wine and it's very inexpensive! Also a GREAT tip I came across when making sangria (white or red) is to keep it chilled place frozen grapes instead of ice cubes so that the drink will not become diluted as they melt. Cheers!

Black Bean Salsa
I left out the fresh tomatoes because it seemed like a little too much with the canned-I think next time I'll only use fresh. Also added jalapenos, 1/4 cup distilled white vinegar and cumin for a little extra flavoring.
