For his riff on the classic Spanish wine-based drink, Jon Santer of Prizefighter in Emeryville, California, layers on more fruity flavors with French apéritif Lillet Rouge and the orange cognac-based liqueur Grand Marnier. Don't skip the homemade grenadine—it's easy to make and adds another dimension to the sangria with real pomegranate flavor, which commercial grenadines, most of which are just red-colored high fructose corn syrup, can't provide.
