This sangria tastes great immediately, but is even better after a few hours in the fridge! You could even make this a day in advance.
*Simple syrup is equal parts sugar and water. I always make extra and store it in the fridge. Place 1 cup granulated sugar and 1 cup water into a glass, microwave safe measuring cup. Microwave until the sugar has dissolved, about 90 seconds. This recipes uses 1/2 cup, so place the excess in a sealable container and store in the fridge!
