As everyone knows to make sangria you need basic ingredients, fruits, wine (which we will replace with apple cider), good brandy, and whiskey, you could use any whiskey you desire, keeping in mind not to choose a whiskey that doesn’t opaque the flavor of your sangria, this is a common mistake as sometimes people find strong sangrias instead of the rich fruity flavor we are used to.

Once you have your ingredients sorted out and your fruits all chopped. It’s time to begin preparing the Sangria. The first to do is to is pour all your ingredients in the jar, brandy, whiskey, apple cider, and sparkling water, wine, or prosecco. The order will not affect the final result, add your fruits, and then add some spices to power up your sangria, a couple of cinnamon twigs, star-shaped anise.
You could also add some pomegranate seeds or dried cherries or cranberries. Blend everything together, make sure the alcohol doesn’t just stay in the bottom, once you give a good stir to all your ingredients, everything looks good, taste it to know it has the right level of everything, its ready to serve. Remember with Sangria you go big or you go home, so don’t make a small jar, get yourself a big one, so you have enough for everyone, trust us.
