"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Sangria was a favorite aperitif at many relaxed Rivers family gatherings, especially on the Holidays. Mom would add sliced fresh fruit and a little sugar to red Spanish Tinto' wine in a big pitcher. To add a Caribbean taste to this Sangria recipe, use a dark flavorful rum in the punch. Salud and Happy Days!
