I live in Barcelona and was able to watch a bartender make sangria in a local sangria bar one night. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!

This was incredibly easy but too much sugery drinks for me. I used diet Polar Dry Orange soda (the best- but not found outside of New England) Sprite Zero and splenda. It came out great and was better the next day. Would make again with my less sugery substitutes. Read More

The drink is good but it could be made much much more simply (and less expensively!) I went to cooking school in Spain and only used brandy and wine as the liquors. Add only enough brandy to cover the fruit mixture then fill the pitcher halfway up with the other sodas then fill it the rest of the way up with wine. Our teacher told us to use cheap red table wine because the complexity of the wine won't come out in a cocktail anyway - so save a few dollars there. It's also really nice to vary the fruit: try mango blueberry or kiwi next time. Omit the lemon - I've never heard of that in Sangria - and go for something more flavorful that you'll actually enjoy finding at the bottom of your glass. Read More

Fabulous. I used to drink these when visiting my ex in-laws near Barcelona. The first one I had was great I ordered another quickly and drank it just as quickly. Needless to say I almost fell off the barstool. I ration them since then:o)) Read More

This recipe has become a constant request at get-togethers! I found it a bit strong so I use 1 1/2 cups for each non-alcoholic ingredient and add an extra tablespoon of brown sugar. Search no more this recipe is it! Read More
