Sangria #06

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 -(up to)
2 Bottles inexpensive cabernet-type red wine
Lemon-lime type soda; like 7-up or Sprite
Oranges
Lemons
Apples
Peaches
(other fruit as available)
Sugar
Brandy (optional)

My husband is from Spain and this is how he makes Sangria . . . In a large pitcher, pour a bottle of wine. Add sliced fruit, leaving room for soda.

Add sugar to taste. Add a shot of brandy, if you like. Add soda right before serving (not hours in advance). If you mix the fruit and wine together in advance, the sangria will have a more fruity flavor but the fruit will be discolored (still tastes fine). The proportion of wine to soda will depend on your personal taste, how good the wine is, how strong you want the sangria to be, and how carbonated you want it. I think that we use a two or three to one ratio. If you have a big enough pitcher, you could always add more wine from the second bottle.
