1 apple, unpeeled, core removed, diced
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup brandy
750ml bottle red wine
1/4 cup caster sugar
750ml bottle soft drink (lemonade, soda water or ginger ale)
Thinly slice 1 orange and 1 lemon. Cut each slice into small wedges and place in a large bowl. Add apple, cinnamon and brandy. Stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Juice remaining oranges and lemon. Combine 1 1/2 cups wine, 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar, 1 1/2 cups soft drink, 1/4 cup orange juice and 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice in a jug. Add half the apple mixture. Stir to combine. Repeat with remaining ingredients in another jug.
Note: Good-quality red wine is crucial to good sangria, as the wine is the dominant ingredient. Try a good cabernet sauvignon, merlot, Spanish rioja or shiraz.
