Brenda's Sangria Recipe

My favorite fast and easy Sangria recipe for parties is to use a big jug of Sangria from the market, by, I don't know... E & J Gallo?
I add 7-up, orange/tangerine juice, and toss in chopped apples and oranges, mixed melon pieces and some of the peel from the apples. And ice, of course.
People drink it more than anything else at my garden parties.
So in a more straightforward way you have:
1 750ml bottle premixed sangria
1 2 liter bottle 7-Up / Sprite
2 cups orange juice
1 apple, chopped
1 orange, segmented
1 cup melon pieces
Prepare a large pitcher or bowl. Pour in the sangria mix, then add in the 7-up, orange juice, apple, orange, and melon. Stir well. Let sit for a few hours if possible so the liquid absorbs the fruit flavors. Serve with ice.
To turn this into a single-glass sangria recipe, a typical assumption is that one 750ml bottle of wine yields four large glasses of wine. Divide all ingredients shown by four. If you're making just one glass worth you probably don't want to wait for the overnight soaking. If the mixture doesn't soak, you just won't get as much of the fruit / berry flavors permeating the sangria.

Note: I created these sangria recipes and have had them online for years. If you find similar sangria recipes elsewhere, it's because someone copied my idea. I do appreciate it when visitors write in to warn me about the plagiarism - but usually there's not much I can do about it! What's really funny is when they copy my design right down to my sangria pitcher. That's a bit much :)
