This are basic steps for sangria, and like with every thing, people add, switch, leave out ingredients to suit their taste. That said, this "recipe" leaves out one of the main ingredients for a real sangria from Spain (I was born in Madrid and had my share), you add "gaseosa" a sweet carbonated water, the best substitute I found here in the US is Squirt. Also for true Spanish sangria, only orange, lemon and a shot of brandy is used, key is the used of cheap read wine, with emphasis in cheap.

I don't care for most red wines so I use either a moscato or a Riesling and I don't add citrus fruits anymore because the rind tends to make it bitter if it sits overnight. I just squeeze the juice out of them and add that instead. And I always add more then just the one liquor. I use rum, triple sec, amaretto, and peach schnapps, one shot each and about 2 cups ginger ale and to keep it from being way too many calories I add Splenda or stevia to sweeten to taste.

This is a bit vague for me; I prefer more explicit directions when making something new (which sangria would be for me).

another variation is to mix in sime 7up or sprite to make it sparkling. Thats how we do it here in Spain.

My Ya Ya girlfriends have Christmas in November over in Nashville each year. I plan to make Sangria this year. I really thought you would add orange juice also. I would add vodka instead of run, but that is just my choice. I am most interested in any recipes that you have tried and tested. I plan to add a peach and a plum to mine.

Great video. I made my sangria exactly as demonstrated in this video and it turned out wonderful.

Definitely not how I would make sangria. I like to put orange juice in mine and a better way is to crush all the fruit inside of the pitcher and then strain it, afterwards adding freshly cut chunks of fruit for garnish.
