Use a rioja (spanish red wine) and make it the day before.
A bottle of cheap red wine*
A similar quantity 7up, Sprite or other sparkling lemon drink (I use Italian soda)
A glass of liquor (brandy, whiskey or cointreau; I use good dark rum)
5-10oz of sugar
*Red wine in Spain can be extremely cheap. The cheapest you can get is usually OK. You are adding so much to it that anything expensive would be a waste. However, for that authentic Spanish feel, a wine from Spain would be best. You can buy a cheap Rioja (the quintessential Spanish wine) at Trader Joes for $5 or so.
Chop the fruit and soak in the liquor in the fridge overnight (optional). If you are worried about mixing your drinks, stick to grape-based beverages and choose brandy.
