I enjoy sangria and this recipe sounded really good. Found on and originated from Cooking Lights magazine. Refrigeration time is cooking time.

This is a good sangria but for us the spices were maybe too much. We may prefer it without the spices. Thanks Lauralie :) Made for I Recommend tag game

Loved it - but look at the ingredients!!! What's not to love??? I really think the brandy and the triple sec (actually, I used Cointreau) made this rendition special and potent. The spice mix was perfect.

*Made for Australia/NZ Swap #26 * -- SOOO sorry to be late, but this was an exellent companion for a lovely fillet mignon ! I prepare 1/2 recipe and used 1 Tbsp peach brandy instead of orange, (was what I had), and a tad less sugar. DH and i really enjoyed this, and will keep as our Go To sangria recipe for summer meals. Thanks, Lauralie41, for posting this most satisfying sangria !
