Triple Berry Sangria — Cheers!

Sangria?  Did someone say sangria?

Oh, jeez, I saw this recipe on the Beachbody website and I just had to share it.  SANGRIA!!!! HELLOOOOOO.  MUST. HAVE. RIGHT. NOW.

Which wine to use?  Use a CHEAP bottle of pinot noir.  Don’t bring out the fancy stuff for this – unless of course, you can afford to dump a $100 bottle of wine into a pitcher.   (Just. No.)
