    My preference for sangria produces a drink that is sparklingly clear and not muddled and cloudy like a mojito. I never use lemonaid although many Spaniards call Sangria limonada. Spot on is using a decent rioja. I like a cheap Spanish brandy such as Fundador or 103 in slightly heavier doses than the above captioned recipe calls for. The Spaniards used to call it conac but the Franchettes uinsisted the world should not market their conac term? Orange & lemon slices are good for warmer months and red apples for colder weather. Crianza grapes are far more tastier than any Spanish white for Sangria. The term itself has blood red meaning. Never, ever put limes in Sangria. If using a cheap rioja, add a small glass of cola to reduce the offensive tannin taste and smooth things out.
