Jeni P's Summer Sangria

Jeni P. is one of my favorite people on the planet. She mixed up a fabulous white Sangria for our little get together at Trish's and I immediately asked her if I could post the recipe. She is, after all, the Queen of All Beverages.
Serve it at your next get together. You friends will love it!
Thanx Jeni P! "You did good!"

1 mango
1 white peach
4 or 5 glugs of white rum
1 bottle of Luna di Luna Chardonnay/Pinot Grigio
16 oz bottle of Sprite
1 1/2 cups white cran peach juice
1/2 cup orange juice

Cut up the mango and peach and soak them in the rum. The longer you soak them, the better it'll be. Remove half of the fruit and discard. Add remaining ingredients and stir. Serve chilled.

Soaking the fruit is an important step because the fruit absorbs the alcohol, making the rum sweeter. This is why you don't want to put all of the fruit back into the sangria. Just discard half of it and float the rest in the pitcher or punch bowl.
If you can't find the Luna Di Luna, use any sweet white wine.
