This is a wonderfully flavorful summertime (or anytime) beverage. Most any fruit you would like to use (except bananas) will probably work with this recipe. You can even use frozen fruit like peaches and berries (but thaw them, first).

I thought this recipe was quite good but there are a few things I will make special note to you of. I put the cloves in the apple slices as suggested but I think I put far to many. Next time I would just use a few. Also I thought it tasted better to fill the glass about 1/3 full of wine mixture and 2/3 with soda. This is a very light and refreshing drink. Very pretty in a glass pitcher w/the fruit pieces. Read More

This Sangria called for way too much fruit and was not nearly as good as what I have had before. It was better after adding some sugar... I will be sure to try a different recipe next time I make Sangria. Read More

Great recipe--my guests LOVED it. Very refreshing on a hot Texas afternoon. I used a cheap Italian Lambrusco and it was delicious--inexpensive too! Read More

I didn't use any strawberries but I think you can use whatever you have. This was a big hit with others. Read More
