New Year's Eve Red Sangria

“This is a Sangria that I make every year when we have people over for New Year's Eve. I think that it is better than some of the Sangrias I have had at restaurants! (Please also see my "New Year's Eve White Sangria" as well!) Note: This was updated with new measurements 11/23/2006 when I stopped eye-balling and really measured! Note 2: I was out of Grand Marnier and substituted 1/4 cup of Chambord and the flavor may have been even better!”
