1. Start with Red Wine

One of the great conveniences of making sangria is that you can use nearly any wine for it. Most people tend to choose a cheaper bottle, and there are some great red wines on the market that cost between $5 and $10.

Sangria is sweeter than regular red wine, so choose a wine carefully depending on how sweet you want your final drink. Did you open a bottle recently that wasn't to your liking? Try making sangria with it.
