Celebrate National Sangria Day with this berry sangria cocktail.  This traditional Spanish cocktail is made by mixing red wine with fruit and sugar.  Also, brandy is sometimes added.  This recipe recommends using Skinnygirl sangria mix to keep calories low but if you are unable to find it, use your favorite red wine varietal.  Berries replace diced oranges and apples to give this cocktail an updated flavor profile.
