Sherry-Sangria Cocktails

Sherry comes in many styles that vary in body and color. This cocktail calls for amontillado, which is light and naturally dry -- a savory contrast to sweet, seasonal fruit. Chill the concoction as you prepare dinner. The fruit will set, and the fortified wine will take on its flavor.
