I have always wanted to make some cocktails myself at home.
So i can be drunk at home, rather than having a super red face like monkey's butt out in Lan Kwai Fong in Central, and still have to travel a long way back home. So that's part of the reason that I dont like drinking any alcohols.

1/2 orange, thinly sliced
1/2 lemon, thinly sliced
1 apple, cored and sliced
2 tbsps fresh lime juice
2 tbsps fresh orange juice
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brandy
1/4 cup orange-flavored liqueur (like Cointreau or Grand Marnier)
1 bottle hearty red wine
1 750-ml bottle sparkling water

Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher, excluding the sparkling water. Stir until sugar dissolved completely.

For the wine, don't get fancy. A high-end wine is unnecessary and will lose it's complexity when combined with all these ingredients. Try a Rioja, Cabernet, Chianti, Sangiovese, or Merlot for around $10.

Ideally, let the sangria chill in the fridge for an hour or so, then top with sparkling water and serve!
