Sangria recipe

My home church is working on a cookbook as part of their centennial celebration. My parents thought I should submit my sangria recipe, but then thought too many people would not understand the preacher having a sangria recipe. Yesterday I was writing out recipes for a friend's bridal shower and gave her the one for Sangria, and then Peacebang mentioned it on her blog and so, I decided it was a sign that I should share it with you!

1 bottle red wine (any type should be fine, I buy it cheap because the flavor morphs with the other ingredients)
2 liters clear soda (7up or sprite)
1/3 cup sugar
3 cinnamon sticks
2 oranges, washed and sliced (with peel on)
1-2 apples, washed, cored, and sliced (1/2" size)

Mix wine soda and sugar in a large pitcher. ***Note: the sugar will make the soda fizz, add it slowly! Add chopped fruit and cinnamon sticks. Refrigerate 2-3 hours before serving. Lasts 7-10 days in the fridge.

**If you use up the liquid but not the fruit, feel free to simply add more wine, soda and sugar to the same fruit and let the flavors mix a couple of hours (if possible) before serving.
