Kitchen tip

It's best to make sangria a day in advance, because the longer the flavors blend together, the better the drink.

Don't put the fruit into the sangria at the last minute. Allow it to soak up the flavor of the liquids.

Use a quality wine in your sangria, and make sure to put it in the glass or pitcher before you start mixing the other ingredients.

Since fruit is a great expression of the seasons, use those types that are fresh and in season. For example, during the fall, choose apples and berries. During the winter, use citrus fruits including oranges and tangerines. In the summer, mix white wine with peaches, nectarines and

Be sure you use fruit juices that are consistent with the fruits in your sangria. In the summer, use peach nectar. If using citrus fruits, use orange juice. If you're using berries, try cranberry juice.
