I also used LOTS of fruit to soak in the Sangria as well as on the side as garnishes. The fruit I used was mango nectarines (a new find at the Farmer's Market), white peaches, plums, cherries, limes, oranges, and Fuji apples.
When it comes to entertaining, I always feel that the presentation is almost as important as the end product itself. My husband would definitely agree being the design and marketing guy that he is. I decided to stick with the farm fresh, easy-going feel.
