Classic Spanish Sangria

Rated as 4.59 out of 5 Stars

"This is an authentic version of the popular wine drink. You can add any fruit that you want, but I find that apples and pears absorb all the rum. This one is not diluted with carbonated beverages. I have much success with red Burgundy wine and white rum, though spiced rum is nice too."

I made this for a cookout for my husband's medical school class, and it was a big hit. I used a box of cheap red wine (5 liters for $10.00)and as was suggested, I used spiced rum. I also added l...

OH MY!! This was fabulous! I used the spiced rum and along with the citrus I added some plum slices. If you desire a less potent Sangria cut the rum in half. The flavor is still wonderful. Freez...

I just got back from Seville and this was so close to the real thing...Two glasses will have you GOOD for the rest of the night. Start out with less rum-- you can always add more later.

This was my first attempt at Sangria. I took the advice of others and used Blackberry Merlot, as well as spiced rum. I topped each serving with Sprite, and it was fantastic! When the Sangria ...

I read the reviews and went with the Blackberry Merlot and cut the white sugar in half. I made a triple batch, but only used a fifth of Bacardi white rum. I also soaked the fruit for 2 days, tur...

This was very good as well, but I changed the recipe a bit. I used a 1.5 liter bottle of wine, 2 cups of rum, 1 cup of sugar, and 2 cups of OJ. My grandma even went wild over it. I also soake...
