Awesome Apple Sangria

This hard apple cider sangria recipe is a must try. The beauty of sangria is in its simplicity. Take some wine and chopped fruit, add sweetener (sugar or sweet fruit juice) and a small amount of brandy to balance the flavor. Chill it, the longer it stays in the fridge the better it gets!
