I fixed this last night for a family get together. I used frozen peaches and sliced up some oranges. Little less on the brandy though, but not much! Everyone loved it! There is really alot you can do to this recipe and made for a conversation piece. Thank you!

Great sangria! I did use Cabernet instead of Merlot, but otherwise followed the recipe. Thanks for sharing another great drink recipe!

A wonderful Sangria recipe Boomette! Made this for a friends birthday party and I ended up having to make 4 more batches! It was very well received! I did add the additional fruit juice and more ginger ale just because I was trying to make it last longer for so many people! No one seemed to mind and everyone seemed to love it! Thanks again for another great drink! (Sorry I never got a good picture of this but I'm sure I will be making it again. Besides, Kim's picture is beautiful!)

YUM~~~ME!!! I made this last night for tonights Italian dinner that never materialized, lol. I did really enjoy this sangria though. Not too sweet and just fruity enough. I only had a 1/2 cup of brandy in the bottle so I had to cut down on that a little and I used a merlot I really like for the wine. I served mine over ice with lemon and lime slices with just a splash of the ginger ale. DH and SIL enjoyed a glass too!

I am drinking a glass of this as we speak and it is fabulous. I didn't have any true OJ on hand so I used some Sunny D and it turned out great. I also used peach juice to give it a little extra. This is a keeper for sure. Thanks

Loved it! I used a full sized bottle of Merlot, 1 cup of brandy and 1 cup each of the juices and added 2 sliced oranges and a lemon and a lime. I then chilled and just before serving added 2 small bottles of ginger ale. Absolutely delicious.

Whew this is *NICE* Loved all the flavors combined. I halved the recipe to just try myself. . . not a big fan of apple juice, but this worked well together with the other juice. Must admit, I drank the whole thing. I will definitely make this again. I used Merlot as it's one of my favorite wines. Thanks for sharing Boomie... it's a *Keeper* Cheers ~V
