Sangria!

Slice up an orange, a lemon, and a lime. Squeeze and mash them up in a large pitcher. Add sugar to taste, a BAY LEAF (or two), 1.5 liters of Spanish red wine of your choice, and 1/2 cup of brandy. Let it steep overnight. Strain, pour over ice and cut with club soda if you like. The bay leaf makes a subtle difference but adds distinction. Who’d’ve thought?
