Recipe ingredients and directions:
My husband is from Spain and this is how he makes Sangria . . .
1-2 bottles of inexpensive cabernet-type red wine
lemon-lime type soda, like 7-UP or Sprite
(other fruit as available)
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.
