    you can add sparkling water to it

    Always wine. Otherwise it is not sangría.

    The capital ingredient is, of course, wine: blanc (in Madrid it is called "limonada") or red. In summer it's difficult finding goog oranges in Spain, so, we use lemon instead. A quite common component is cinnamon (two sticks).Many peopple like to add brandy or cognac. Anywhere, for childrens or driving, is better no alcohol at all!

    12 Steps, no alcohol? I get it! Just kidding, this is a nice non-alcoholic version of sangria. Only thing I'd do differently is to use all fresh fruit - peaches should be in season if you're going to use them. But honestly, any sweet fruit would work. I've used blackberries and nectarines, too (never tried a banana, though).

    Your recipe is very accurate to the spanish sangria. But the fellow commenters are right, the sangria is, by definition, a cooler-type wine. Besides that, great 'ible!!!

    I thought Sangria is a wine? either way this seems to be a very interesting fruit punch. Punch on!

    I have edited the instructions to reflect your request for wine. It was a requirement for our class, and having to make the sangria in class meant no wine. It should be all good now!
