Snow is melting, patios are opening and the sun stays out longer. Perfect time to practice and perfect your very own sangria mix. This post is to empower YOU to make your very own sangria mix to match your likings. Here's the tricks to the mix.
Chose a wine you like.
Chose flavors you want to highlight or contrast from the wine.
Add fruit to broaden the wine's bouquet and to bring some sweetness.
Let the flavors mix and mingle for a bit.
Add liquor (I like Cointreau or Lychee Soho for a white wine Sangria) and some brandy.

Add the soda, either soda water or something flavored.
Serve with friends.
