    I had a fruity sangria at TGI Fridays that was made with 'yellow tail shiraz. It had lemons, limes, and oranges on top, and has tropical juices in it. Does anyone have a recipe for this?

    Sangria is basically a Spanish "wine punch."

    Cook's Illustrated says this:

    The longer sangria sits before drinking, the more smooth and mellow it will taste. A full day is best, but if thatís impossible, give it an absolute minimum of two hours to sit. Use large, heavy, juicy oranges and lemons for the best flavor.

    I've never had TGIF's sangria, but I would start with your bottle of shiraz, add maybe a quarter cup each of triple sec and sugar, a bit of OJ, and your fruit (an orange, a lemon, and a lime, maybe?), washed and sliced thin.

    Many sangria recipes also add club soda, ginger ale or 7-up, but I'm a purist, myself and don't. icon_smile.gif

    BTW, if you ever get into the Newark NJ area, there's a Portugese restaurant downtown called Forno's that has to-die-for house sangria by the pitcher - both red and white. yummy.gif

    Yellowtail is a brand of Australian shiraz. Any red wine sangria recipe will probably be fairly close.

    I don't have TGIF's recipe but the drink is called:
    "Ultimate Yellow Tail Sangria"

    I think the trick to recreating their sangria is to find out what tropical juices they are adding to it. It is probably a mix.... but next time you are there ask the bartender.... And if you find the answer please let me know icon_smile.gif

    I thought this recipe looked good "Majorca Sangria (The Real Deal)"
    so I added it to my :list" of things to try one day.

    I love a good sangria. I happen to make a good one and it is sweetened w/ "Simple Sugar Syrup" so add as much or as little as you like.

    I will publish my recipe and pass it on to you. It calls for Captain Morgan Spiced rum. YUM!

    I just spent a summer in Barcelona and have been searching for the real thing ever since.

    I just found it at Fridays. (Friday's is a little fruitier, though)

    I asked and the bartender said, "If I tell you, I will have to kill you," just jokeingly.

    He said that they had that Yellowtail red wine, pineapple juice, hurricane mix, grenadine, and a high-quality type of triple sec that started with a G. As for the quantities for the ingredients, I have no clue...but I will take any excuse to experiment with sangria!

    YUM! Have fun!

    Hurricane mix would be their "secret" ingredient! Wonderful!
    Now... we play!

    This is what I use to make one hurricane :

    1 ounce orange juice
    1 ounce fresh lime juice (NOT Rose's or RealLime)
    1/4 cup passion fruit juice
    1 teaspoon grenadine
    1 teaspoon sugar


    Your "G" is more then likely: Grand Marnier
