A great way to use up an open bottle of red wine! Be sure to use a fresh quality ginger ale for that needed zing. I floated grape eyeballs in ours for a Halloween theme. Read More

Watch out for both the ginger ale and the wine. If you use a super sweet wine then your drink will be super sweet. I used diet ginger ale which is what I had on hand. Next time I would use a drier red and non diet. I still prefer classic sangria but this is good in a pinch. Read More

This is so dependent on the wine you use. I know nothing about wine so I followed the suggestion in the recipe description and it made it a touch dry for my crowd. Knowing your drinkers and your wine can make this a nice sangria-esque drink in a pinch. THANKS for the recipe! Read More

I am the recipe creator. As one reviewer suggested regular gingerale (not diet) contributes the best soda taste for this drink. I use and suggest a high quality gingerale such as Vernons. Enjoy! Read More
