Cut the orange in half. Using a vegetable peeler, cut off the thin outer peel of orange half, avoiding the bitter pith. Slice the other half of the orange and use for garnish. In a bowl, use a spoon to mash the sugar into the orange peel so the sugar absorbs the oils. Stir in all remaining ingredients. Cover and chill for 8-24 hours. Remove the orange peel and bay leaves. Serve Sangria in a pitcher garnished with reserved orange slices and fruits. Add 3-4 ice cubes to each glass. Serves 6.
