This cool sipper is so lip-smacking good that you'll be tempted to make a second batch even before the first is gone. Take advantage of fresh, summer fruit by adding cantaloupe, honeydew or watermelon. And feel free to add the ice to the blender if you want grown-up slushies.
1 (1 liter) bottle Gran Vina Sangria
2 plums, pitted and sliced, plus more for garnish
1/2 pound cherries, stemmed and pitted
2 (12-ounce) cans ginger ale
Ice for glasses
Working in 2 batches, purée Sangria, plums and cherries until smooth. (Strain through a fine sieve and discard any solids, if you like.) Pour over ice in tall glasses, top off with ginger ale, garnish with additional sliced plums and serve.
