- 1 apple, cored and thinly sliced
- In a small saucepan, add the water and sugar.
- Set temperature to medium-high and bring sugar-water to a boil.
- Keep boiling until you dissolve the sugar and the syrup is clear. About 10 minutes. In a large container, pour in the lime juice and orange juice. Then, stir in the sugar syrup and mix thoroughly. Next, add the wine, brandy, sparkling water, lemon slices, orange slices, and apple slices. Let the Sangria sit for 10 minutes. Pour into a tall glass, garnish with a lime, and enjoy! (Extra points if you serve in a hurricane glass. lol)
