Sangria from the Spaniards (thanks Maria!)

My roommate is from Spain and knows how to make some mean sangria. There are many ways to make it, but her version is the best I’ve tasted thus far.

Maria’s sangria (and Jaime)
-Chopped fruit; apples, pears, peaches (whatever you want)
-Rum (or whichever liquor you want, gin works)
-Juice of 3 oranges
-Juice of 3 lemons
-1/4 C orange and lemon zest
-red wine
-Sprite or 7up

I wish I had portions to suggest, but I guess you’ll have to taste test at every rum-sugar-filled step of the recipe. Sorry. Throw sugar, rum, orange/lemon juice, orange/lemon zest and cinnamon on chopped fruit. After mixing and tasting, add red wine and Sprite. Chill and add ice as needed.

    Hey Jamie,
    we also put some bananas (no pears), but as you say, you can put whatever you want in it. Also, we let the chopped fruit, juices, sugar and cinnamon macerate (for about 30-45 minutes, stirring and mixing the juices 4 or 5 times) together with the dark rum (or preferred liquor. Brandy or Cognac also works!) before adding wine and sprite (or other lemmon flavoured soda).

    Glad you like it!
