I made sangria for the first time EVAR for a potluck this past weekend! I scoured the internetz for inspiration, remembered a few tasty sangrias I'd had in the past, and whipped up my own concoction (I like to keep things complicated.. simplicity sucks).

Here's the recipe. It makes about 5L of not-super-boozy sangria:
1L red wine
1 orange, sliced
1 lime, sliced
1 grapefruit, sliced
1/2 cup of raspberries (I'd probably omit these in the future. they got kinda gross in the bottom of the jug).
half a jar of maraschino cherries + a bit of the juice

1L of water
1/2-1 cup of grenadine
3/4 can of frozen mango punch concentrate (any punch could probably be substituted)

1 cup of peach schnapps
1/2 cup of triple sec
1/2 a can of frozen pink lemonade concentrate
3/4 of a can of frozen orange juice concentrate
2 cups of water (to turn the frozen concentrate into juice)

1. 24 hours ahead of time, mix the wine and fruit in a jug and store it in the fridge.
2. At least 12 hours ahead of time, make the ice cubes out of juice, water, and grenadine: mix the frozen concentrate plus the water and pour into 4 ice cube trays. Pour the grenadine into the tray (if you're good, you can get layered ice cubes, not that anyone will look at the ice cubes that closely).
3. At least 12 hours ahead of time, add the extra alcohol and juice
4. At the last minute, add the ice to the jugs and serve!
