  • A bottle of light red wine
  • Spanish brandy, 100 millilitres
  • Sparkling water, 300 millilitres
  • Oranges, roughly chopped
  • Pears, roughly chopped
  • Lemons, roughly chopped
  • Strawberries, roughly chopped
  • Cinnamon, one teaspoon
  • Ice


1. Chop all of your fruit roughly, sprinkling with cinnamon – you can also add a little sugar if you like your Sangría on the sweeter side. Leave to chill in the fridge for an hour, at minimum.

2. Add a good amount of ice to a jug, before adding in your fruit mixture and combining thoroughly.

3. Add wine and brandy, before topping up with sparkling water and mixing thoroughly.
