It’s the perfect drink to toast this animated classic.

Bella Notte Sangria


For Non-Alcoholic Version:
2 cups orange juice
2 cups pineapple juice
1 orange, sliced into rounds
1 Lime, sliced into rounds
1 lemon, sliced into rounds
1 apple, diced into chunks
2 cups lemon-lime soda

For Alcoholic Version, Add:
4 cups Chianti
1 cup brandy
1/2 cup triple sec

1. Wash all fruits thoroughly, especially the apple. Leave peels on for color.

2. In a large pitcher, stir the orange and pineapple juices together. If making the version with spirits, add in chianti, brandy, and triple sec, and stir well.

3. Add fresh fruits into the pitcher and cover tightly.

4. Refrigerate at least 3 hours but preferably overnight for up to 24 hours. This allows the fruit to soak up the liquids.

5. Just before serving, add lemon-lime soda. Serve in glasses over ice.

So mix up a pitcher (or two) of Bella Notte Sangria, and be sure to use and follow the hashtag #D23Fanniversary to share with other fans!
