Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover, or preheat a gas grill to medium-high.

To make the sauce, combine all of the ingredients in a bowl. Cover and set aside.

To make the salad, combine the ingredients in a bowl. Cover and set aside.

To make the patties, combine all spices, except the Sangria, with the hamburger and mix well. Add the Sangria and mix well.

Brush the grill rack with vegetable oil when grill is ready. Place the patties on the rack, cover, and cook about 8 minutes, or until brown on bottom. Turn the patties and brush top with Sangria. Cover and cook 8 minutes longer or until done.

During the last 2 minutes of cooking, place buns on outer edge of the grill and lightly brush with garlic butter mixture.

During the last minute, top burgers with mozzarella slices. Replace cover and cook.

To assemble the burgers, spread an ample amount of sauce on the cut sides of the bread. On each bottom, place leaf of lettuce, a patty, and salad. Add the roll tops and serve.
