Active time: 15 minutes
Total time: At least 2 hours
In a small saucepan, combine 1/2 cup water, sugar, cinnamon stick, peppercorns, allspice berries, cloves, star anise, and red pepper flakes. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar is dissolved. Strain into a jar and refrigerate until ready to use.
In a large pitcher or punch bowl, stir together spiced syrup, wine, brandy, triple sec, peaches, and nectarines. Refrigerate 2 hours or as long as overnight. When ready to serve, pour the sangria into ice-filled glasses and top with club soda. Sprinkle with lemon zest and serve.
