Pomegranate Sangria - Shower Recipe 3

This pomegranate sangria was a recommendation by my boss. It is a Bobby Flay recipe that I modified a little bit. This recipe uses two bottles of red wine, so make sure you have a big enough pitcher, or split between two. I actually bought this plastic pitcher with a sealed lid for easy transport. It was also ideal for making in advance.

2 bottles of fruity red wine, a Spanish rioja or a French red should be good
2 cups pomegranate juice
1/2 cup simple syrup, cooled (Place 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar into a saucepan. Heat over low-medium heat until all the sugar dissolves. Stirring occasionally.)
3/4 cup triple sec
3/4 cup brandy
1 Granny Smith apple, cored and sliced
1 orange, sliced
1 lemon, sliced

Place the fruit on the bottom of the pitcher. Pour in the rest of the ingredients, stir well. Cover, place in the refrigerator for atleast 4 hours, or up to 48 hours. Serve over ice.
