The BEST Sangria Recipe EVER

Over the weekend my mom had a party and I wanted to bring Sangria for all the girls to enjoy. Thanks to an awesome bartender's tip I got my hands on a delicious Sangria recipe that was such a hit at the party that everyone asked for the recipe. Here it is:

What You Will Need:
- 4-6 shots of Brandy (depending on how strong you want the liquor content)
- 4-6 shots of Triple Sec (depending on how strong you want the liquor content)
- 2 shots of OJ
- 2 cups of Sprite (if you would rather have more alcohol sub Champagne for the Sprite.)
- 1 3Liter Bottle of Carlo Rossi Sangria Wine
- 2 cans of fruit cocktail in juice (NOT SYRUP)
 
Since it produces enough Sangria to make two pitchers, to make it easier on myself I poured half the Carlo Rossi Sangria Wine into one pitcher and the other half into a second pitcher. To each pitcher of wine I added 2-3 shots of brandy, 2-3 shots of Triple Sec, 1 shot of OJ, 1 cup of sprite and 1 can of fruit cocktail in juice. Don't drain the can of fruit cocktail! Add the whole thing. The sweet juice takes away the bitterness of the wine so there isn't an aftertaste.
 
Mix it all up and let it sit for about 4-6 hours prior to drinking. Stir it before serving.YUM!
