Pomegranate Sangria

This is my go-to red sangria recipe. It's always a big hit. This recipe has been altered from a Bobby Flay recipe. If you're making this for a party, I recommend making it a day in advance. All the flavors really combine well and the fruit can marinate.

1 bottle fruity red wine, such as a Rioja or merlot
2 cups pomegranate juice
1/2 cup brandy
1/2 cup Triple Sec
1/4 cup simple syrup (equal amounts sugar and water, heated until sugar dissolves, cooled)
1 large orange, halved and thinly sliced
1 lime, thinly sliced
1 lemon thinly sliced
1 cup red grapes, sliced in 1/2

Combine all ingredients in a pitcher, cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or up to 48 hours before serving. Serve over ice.
