There are so many different versions of Sangria out there. This sangria recipe is my favorite. Everyone I serve this special drink to is impressed with the abundance of fresh fruit as well as its delicious favor. This recipe does take a little more effort than most, but it’s definitely worth the effort! If it’s not sweet enough for you, add a little simple syrup or agave nectar.
