1: Choose a red wine - Sangria is a refreshing drink and you don't need to use a vintage wine. We recommend a reasonably priced wine from Jumilla, Alicante or Valencia..... Put the wine into a jug, add the sugar, and stir until it is properly dissolved.
2: Squeeze the two oranges, and add the juice to the jug. Save a slice of orange skin to decorate.
3: Wash the peaches, peel them and cut them into small quarters (e.g. six per peach). Add them to the jug. If it is not Summer, you can use any other in-season fruit.
4: Put the jug into the fridge. Sangría should always be served chilled. If you want to reduce the alchohol concentration, add icecubes and slices of lemon. If you want to increase the alcohol concentration, add a small amount of cognac or rum.
Tips / Secrets: Make it nice and fruity. Apples, pears, kiwis, bananas, tropical fruits.... can be used instead of (or aswell as) peach. You can experiment byadding more or less drinks such as cognac, rum, gin and vodka, or you can dilute the alcohol content by adding more orange juice and ice cubes. Some sangria fans like to add drinks such as a can of 7-up, or fizzy orange or lemon. And finally: if you do experiment and find the result irresistable, make sure you have a bed handy, have a nice siesta, and don't drive, even if you feel up to it.
