What you'll need:
1.5 Liters of Red Wine 
6 Ounces of Gin
8 Cups of Ginger Ale
4 Tablespoons of Sugar
2 Apples, sliced
2 Nectarines, sliced
1 Bunch of Grapes, sliced in half lengthwise

How to make it:
Pour the red wine, gin, and ginger ale into large pitcher or container. Stir in sugar until dissolved. Slice apples, nectarines, and grapes, add to mixture. It's recommended that you let it chill overnight to let the flavors blend together, but you can also serve it right away over ice.

There are a lot of sangria recipes out there with varying ingredients and measurements. JD and I ended up picking and choosing the parts we liked and didn't decide on what fruit we would add until we got to the market. The nectarines looked good that day so we went with them over peaches, which were featured in a lot of the recipes. You can use pretty much any kind of fruit you'd like in sangria. For wine we used Yellowtail's Shiraz-Cabernet because it was inexpensive, flavorful, and on the dry side. You want your wine to be a little drier to balance out all of the sugar you're adding with the ginger ale and fruit. We also decided to use gin instead of brandy, mostly because I like gin and had a some on hand. All in all we were very happen with the final result of our mix and match batch. It was delicious and so simple to make!
