2. In a saucepan simmer 1/2 cup of white sugar and 1/2 cup of water on medium heat. Bring to a boil and then remove from heat and cool slightly (BAM, you just made a simple syrup! Now you know, that’s pretty much a fancy word for a sugar/water mixture)

3. Combine sliced fruit, simple syrup and wine in a pitcher and let the flavours marry overnight. ( The longer all those delicious things hang out together the better the sangria tastes)
