Spring Sangria

If you are contemplating a spring soiree, grilling for two or entertaining a small crowd; allow me to introduce two "Spring Sangria's".  Chef Sequoia Ross who constantly helps me at the house with food options suggested, Peach Nectarine Sangria & Melon Mint Sangria. Majority of my guest indulged the Peach Nectarine Sangria but I enjoyed the minty fresh flavor of the Melon Mint Sangria. 

Peach Nectarine Sangria
1 peach
1 nectarine
1 plum all pitted and sliced into wedges.
16 dar cherries-reserve the juice.
