Here’s my Sangria recipe:

2 750 ml bottles cheap, but not sucky, dry white wine

1.5 c brandy

1 c sweetened lemonade (I like Neuman’s Own)

10 oz frozen peaches

10 oz frozen raspberries

sparkling water and/or sugar to taste

Steep the fruit in the brandy and lemonade in the fridge for a few hours if possible. Combine chilled wine and brandy. Taste and sweeten if necessary. Ladle into glasses and add a splash of sparkling water to each cup just before serving.
