Classic Spanish Sangria

This is an authentic version of the popular wine drink. You can add any fruit that you want, but I find that apples and pears absorb all the rum.

This one is not diluted with carbonated beverages. I have much success with red Burgundy wine and white rum, though spiced rum is nice too.
