As festive a drink as they come. You can use either red or white wine as the base for Sangria but to my taste, white Sangria is the way[ to go. It's smoother than the red kind and it looks more elegant. It goes easy but packs a real punch (no pun intended). You want your sangria to be well chilled when it's served but instead of diluting all the amazing flavors in the punch bowl with a bunch of melting ice, just put out a bucket of ice so people can fill their glasses with ice before serving themselves. You only need a small bottle of brandy, which should only cost you about seven bucks, but you can make this recipe without it.]
Pour the wine and brandy over the fruit and sugar in a large serving bowl. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Stick a ladle in the sangria so people can serve themselves and have a full bucket of ice by the side of the bowl. (Don't let the ice run out.)
