Summertime Sangria

I made this for the first time at our annual 4th of July gathering, and it was a hit! If I changed anything, it would be to decrease the proportion of fruit and basil for a 750 ML bottle of wine. You could easily double the liquids for the listed amount of fruit, and judging by the response of my guests, that would be the way to go. Light, clean, refreshing...delicious! Make a double recipe!
