Grown Up Lemonade (or Sparkling Lemon Sangria!)

I bought a sangria book a few years ago. I love sangria and was naive to think that all sangrias were alike, made with red wine and citrus fruit. To my delight I saw a flavor for all seasons and all moods! I decided that a lemon sangria made with sparkling wine would fit the mood yesterday.

I used one bottle of good Prosecco (Italian sparkling wine)

1/3 Cup of Lemoncello (Italian lemon liqueur)

1 Cup of pink lemonade (I used Newman's Own)

1 large handful of frozen raspberries

I poured all the ingredients into a large pitcher, gave it a good stir and poured away! The longer the liquid sat in the pitcher the more pink it became (from the raspberries)

My grown up lemonade was a huge hit!
