Very citus-y sangria. You can't ignore all the flavours in this Sangria. Some sangria, all you can taste is wine with a little fruit, but this is a beautiful blend of fruits.

NAUGHTY! Made this for lunchtime, and I felt like a nap afterwards! A HUGE kick but SO refreshing and fruity! Great sangria recipe - loved this and will make it after ZWT5! Made for ZWT5 and still feeling the effects now! FT:-)

I made this for a birthday party, and it got rave reviews! This was my contribution to the ZWT Spain/Portugal Viva Valencia Challenge. Although I liked it as written in the recipe, I added a little Sprite soda and liked it even more. I served this with Manchego-Stuffed Dates Wrapped in Bacon (Tapas) and they balanced each other out nicely. Thanks for a great recipe!

Rita, you've done it again! I've never made sangria before and this was easy and tasty. Instead of corn syrup, I used equal amounts of splenda. I also threw in some grand mariner, which really highlights the orange in this fruity drink - wonderful summer drink! The red wine that I used was a malbec from Argentina. Made for ZWT5.

I've tried several sangria recipes in the past, and they were either too boozy or too sweet. This one was great - right in the middle. In fact, as I was pouring all the alcohol in, I was thinking OMG this is going to be scary. It was really good! I halved the recipe, used simple syrup and a nice Cabernet. I did let it sit for a few hours in the fridge for the flavors to blend. Very yummy! This is a keeper!

This Sangria is GREAT! Loved the mingle of flavors in this. I also sliced up some apple slices (Macintosh) thinly to add to the fruits. Great addition! I used a semi-dry Riesling and it was the right one to use! Everyone emptied the bowl in no time. Next time I will buy enough of everything to make more!

It was easy to make. Everyone loved it. The only problem was I couldn't make enough of it, fast enough every pitcher I put out was gone in seconds. I had to send my son out to the liquor store for more wine. I did use white wine. It was a big hit. It started the party going real fast. This is a keeper.

Used Blue Jean, a CA wine and was pleased with the results. As mentioned by others, the citrus fruits blended well with the wine and neither overpowered the other. Made this for ZWT3
