When you're buying the red wine, be sure to buy the cheapest kind they sell...you know, like we did in college. Before we had real jobs.
Add sliced oranges, apples, lemons and sugar to large pitcher; mash gently with wooden spoon until fruit releases some juice, but is not totally crushed, and sugar dissolves, about 1 minute.

Then just stand and stare at them. Aren't they pretty??
Before serving, add a dozen ice cubes to each pitcher and stir briskly to distribute settled fruit and pulp. Serve immediately.
Warning: Once you taste this Sangria, you will want to keep it for yourself. I am here to tell you that no good can come from this. You will become a Sangria Hoarder. TLC Network will make a reality show about you and with the cameras rolling, they'll hire counselors to talk you out from under the front porch, clutching your half empty pitcher of Sangria. It's not a pretty picture, is it? Maybe you should just call your friends to come over and help you drink it. We'll just keep the Sangria Hoarding thing between us.
Mums the word.....
unless she likes Sangria too.
