Simply pour a bottle of red wine into a pitcher, and add a hint of Brandy, sugar, and plenty of fresh fruit and club soda. The flavors of the fruit and wine will weave together wonderfully—also known as maceration—in the fridge for one hour, then your sangria is ready to serve. We love Rioja (it’s Spanish, as is sangria itself), but another light- to medium-bodied red wine will do just fine. Ingredients 1 bottle Rioja or other light- or medium-bodied red wine 2 tablespoons sugar 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) brandy, optional 1 navel orange, thinly sliced ½ pint large, plump blackberries 1 cup club soda Directions Combine wine, sugar, and brandy (if using) in a large pitcher and stir to dissolve sugar. Add fruit and pour in club soda. Refrigerate for 1 hour or more before serving to allow fruit to macerate and sweeten sangria. Serve in tall glasses filled with ice.
