Notes:

WHAT WINE IS THE BEST FOR SANGRIA?

If you'll ask a Spanish person how to make a real sangria, he will probably tell you that you must use Spanish wine. But let's be honest, almost any fruity red wine goes well here. From searches online I found that the wines for sangria are Merlot, pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon and more.

WHAT FRUITS CAN WE USE TO MAKE SANGRIA?

The basic version of sangria is: orange, apple and lemon. But you really can add almost any fruit that you like. Some of the most popular fruits in sangria are: pears, apricots, peaches, pineapples, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries. 

WHAT SWEETENER IS THE BEST FOR SANGRIA?

Usually, sangria is made with sugar or honey. But you can play around and add your favorite sweetener or use what you have on hand. Such as: maple syrup, agave syrup, brown sugar or any other sweetener.

DO WE HAVE TO ADD BRANDY TO SANGRIA?

Traditionally, in Spain they add to sangria a portion of brandy, it adds a nice kick to the cocktail. If you don’t like brandy or you don't have brandy, you can use instead cognac or even maybe whisky. You can add as much or as little as you like. Usually, it's recommended to add 1/4 cup for each bottle of wine.
