You can add any fruit you prefer, the key is to use fruit that’s in season in order to get the best flavor. So while citrus and berries are the best for sangria, also consider fruits like peach, pineapple, mango, melon and apple. For the yummiest Sangria let the fruit marinate in the wine a day ahead or at least a few hours before serving.

You can add a few shots of your favorite liquor and a splash of orange juice.
If you’d like to add bubbles, consider soda water or a citrus flavored soda. Some sangria lovers add honey or sugar as well.
