Adding grilled fruit to this sangría gives it a bit of smoky flavor that complements the red wine and brandy, but also mellows out the booziness. Citrus, apples, and grapes are grilled, then mixed into red wine, orange liqueur, brandy, and orange juice. The mix is then chilled and, right before serving, it’s topped off with sparkling wine for some extra pizazz. This easy-drinking cocktail makes a big batch, so serve it while tailgating or at a barbecue with a bunch of friends.
