What do you do when life gives you lemons?

Well, it was really an apple, an orange, half a lemon, and a slightly shrivelled-up lime that Jeff found while cleaning out the fridge before our imminent trips home for the holidays. But to answer the question: you make SANGRIA!

Jeff ran to the internet as I chopped up the apple, peeled and zested the orange, and juiced the lime into a pitcher. We added a shot of light rum and poured in several cups of red (from the box) wine. We let it sit for an hour (during which time I had a surprisingly good run around the block), then squeezed in the half lemon. It tasted a bit strong and sour, but a packet of sugar and can of diet Sierra Mist later, it's the perfect poinsettia red cocktail. I feel just a little like Martha.
