8 to 10 glasses


  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 (750 milliliter) bottle dry white wine

  • 1 (750 milliliter) bottle dry red wine

  • 1 orange, sliced

  • 1 lemon, sliced

  • 1 cup sliced fresh peaches

  • 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries

  • 1 cup seedless red grapes, halved


  1. Combine the sugar, white wine, and red wine in a large bowl and stir for several minutes until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the sliced orange and lemon. Cover and refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours or overnight.

  2. Stir the mixture and divide it into pitchers. Add the sliced fruit and serve the sangria over ice.

Cook's Notes:

Adding sliced seasonal fruit is optional but highly recommended. To make a double batch of sangria, use 2 oranges, 2 lemons, 2 cups sugar, 6 1/3 cups (50 3/4 ounces) dry white wine, and 6 1/3 cups (50 3/4 ounces) dry red wine. Add fruit as desired. To make a 2-gallon batch for a large crowd (5 times the recipe), use 10 bottles of wine.
