During the sultry August of 1964, many Americans sampled this Spanish drink for the first time at the New York World's Fair. Sangria, a mixture of chilled wine and fruit, was an instant hit.
In a pitcher, combine fruit. Sprinkle with sugar, and stir to combine. Add Cointreau and brandy; let sit at least 1 hour. Stir in wine and juice. Serve chilled.
