This is the sangria that my friends taught me to make in Spain. It's quick and easy and makes a great drink to mix up for a summer party.

It was excellent. I would have liked to give it 5 stars for kid friendliness but I'm not sure that children should be drinking wine (even if it is mixed with lots of fruit and lemon-lime soda). Read More

I hadn't made Sangria before until my boyfriend's 36th b-day recently... the beverage was a hit. Many comments that it was really good. I DID add Jamaican Rum to the mix though. This recipe made 6 pitchers. Read More

I had 1/2 bottle of red wine to use up so I scaled this recipe down to 6 servings. I actually butchered her recipe. I used what I had on hand: red wine sprite fresh peaches fresh strawberries and sugar. Drank it right away instead of letting it sit for 6 hours. It was perfect and just what I was looking for on the hot humid day! I'm not the greatest at following directions exactly they're always a guide! Either way this is a keeper! Read More

Very good. I had never had sangria prior to making this and I was pleasantly surprised. I took the advice of another recipe and added about two ounces of Cointreau and sliced strawberries. My mom even loved it and she's a wine snob. Read More

I added a lot more fruit but omitted the bananas. Used about a cup (ish) of rum half cup (ish) of Sloe Gin and half cup (ish) of Triple Sec and a full bottle of some red wine. I let it sit for a bout 4 hours added two liters of lemon lime soda served over ice and sprinkled with a tiny bit of cinnamon. I drank way too much it was that yummy! Read More

I have made this several times for family functions and it is a big hit I always add 1 cup peach snapps and 1 cup coconut rum to give it a little more Kick. We usually have it for birthdays and our family reunion. People always ask me about it and want to know what is in it. Read More

Holy Cow is this sangria excellent and easy!!!! I only had peaches oranges and 1 apple. I halved the recipe and used splenda instead to make it lighter. Awesome! I believe I used the same amount of splenda. It was so good that my friends made me make more on the spot. They even ran out to get more soda. Read More
