There is a right way to make sangria. It usually involves a dozen or more ingredients and plenty of time.
But sometimes you need a deliciously refreshing fruity-winey cocktail by the glass in about 2 minutes.
Use whatever wine you have open.
Quick red sangria

2 tablespoons grenadine
1 tablespoon sugar
Juice of 1/2 lime
2 tablespoons 7-Up or other lemon-lime soda
Ice
In a tall glass, combine the wine, grenadine, sugar and lime juice. Mix well, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Add the soda, stir gently, then add the ice.
