This was a very good recipe, but not as good as Classic Spanish Sangria from this site. I did not add apples because I've noticed in the past that they soak up too much of the liquor. I added frozen strawberries and blueberries instead. I followed everything else exactly except for using white rum instead of brandy since I don't keep brandy on hand. Even with the fruit and orange juice, I found that after letting it sit, it was very tart. Perhaps it was the type of dry red wine I used? I had to make a simple syrup to stir in to add some sweetness. All in all, a good recipe but I might just stick with the other one I've tried from allrecipes.com. I loved the idea of using pineapple chunks though and will continue to do that! FYI: I'm fairly certain that "the Pros" use cranberry juice in their sangria. I know for sure that Olive Garden does!
