Summer means sangria time—and it is just the perfect drink for a July 4th celebration. With that in mind, here are recipes for white and red sangria courtesy of Bow & Truss in North Hollywood. Each recipe makes one pitcher.

Red Sangria

1 750ml bottle malbec

½ cup Spanish brandy

¼ cup pomegranate juice

¼ cup fresh orange juice

¼ cup simple syrup (see recipe below)

sliced apples, oranges and lemons (vary with season; stone fruits like peaches and plums are nice for summer)

Mix all ingredients. While the sliced fruit looks best freshly sliced, it tastes best after infused in the mixture for a bit.

White Sangria

1 750ml bottle chardonnay

½ cup dry sherry

¼ cup orange liqueur

3 ounces fresh lemon juice

3 ounces fresh orange juice

¼ cup simple syrup (see recipe below)

Mix all ingredients, add fruit, let stand for an hour. Fruit changes with seasons, but this batch was made with lemons, apples and oranges; throw in a few strawberries for color contrast.

Simple Syrup (makes 1-1/3 cups)

1 cup sugar

1 cup water

In a medium saucepan combine sugar and water. Bring to a boil, stirring, until sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool.
