Author Notes: I love this drink so much I have planted 4 passion fruit vines in my backyard. Passion fruit has a unique, tantalizing an unmistakable aroma and is the signature flavor of this sangria. Passion fruit is abundant in Hawaii, New Zealand, Australia, Africa and South America and can be found in some California farmer's markets. This light, but full-flavored sangria is reminiscent of the vacation of your dreams. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! —Kim at Something New For Dinner
