Sangria combines red or white wine, brandy or cognac, orange juice, and fresh seasonal fruits into a chilled punch that is perfect for the summer months. The drink originated in Spain and takes its name from the word sangre, which means “blood.” It should be served as cold as possible. Before the wine and fruit are mixed, the fruits should be macerated in sugar and a little brandy, Cointreau or Grand Marnier. Avoid highly acidic fruits such as pineapple, because they detract from the flavor instead of enhancing it.
