My husband, Randy, has perfected traditional sangria. I shared this tasty and potent summer cooler with my AR friends at MauiGirl's home, ergo, the title of the recipe. I hope that you enjoy it too. Be careful. This sangria can 'sneak up' on you!

Sangria and I had a very bad break-up in my early adulthood so I approached this with caution. I only had a taste of it at the Round Up but what I had was delicious! I'll definitely be making this in the comfort of my own home where I can better monitor my intake and subsequent actions:-) Read More

We used good ingredients but the cabernet gave the drink a really harsh note no one liked. Read More

Served at the Midwest Round-Up in KC. Perfect recipe very refreshing. According to the submitter do use cabernet sauvignon it doesn't have to be expensive but a substitution may not taste the same. Also use regular limes not key limes since they may be bitter. Better if you use flavored sparkling water. All suggestions came directly from the submitter of the recipe. Thank you for a great recipe! Read More

Perfect sangria! This adds just enough fruit so it still tastes like wine (some sangria recipes are almost fruit punch!) Although I did cut down the brandy down to 1 cup. It's still pretty potent. Read More

I love the honey in this recipe. Other Sangrias use sugar and can be too sweet. This is a pretty drink so the kids asked if they could have some so I made them some grape juice with sparkling water floated the fruit in it so they didm't feel left out. Read More

Magnolia Blossom made this at my roundup. I merely watched but it is good. And it is potent with the potential to be sneaky. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This was good but a tad bit too potent for me. It could be because I had to use key limes (because it was all I had). When I added a lot of ice it helped water it down a bit and was much better. In all good flavor but will cut down on the brandy next time. Read More
