DIRECTIONS

  • Place about a half of the pineapple, the lemon, the lime, the orange wedges, and half the peaches (if using) in a large pitcher. Add the triple sec, brandy, and simple syrup, and muddle using a muddler or a large spoon. If desired, remove the muddled fruit, squeezing out any liquid. (You can also leave the fruit remnants in, but it looks nicer with them removed).
  • Add the red wine, orange juice, and the rest of the fruit, stirring well. Refrigerate until serving.
  • TO SERVE: Pour desired amount of sangria into glass (or glass filled with ice) and top with club soda (if desired).
