Good but strong. I think I know why it's called killer, I got a headache half way through the drink. LOL I think it was the wine, I really don't care for wine that much.

Killer Sangria, heh? Whatever doesn't kill me just makes me stronger, right? Oh, but the added pressure. Made for PRMR.

I thought that this was good sangria. I can see where it gets the name "killer." It's pretty strong, but good. It is thicker than what I am usually used to, owing to the frozen juice concentrate (I used orange mango as suggested). I followed all ingredients and directions as posted and stirred once a day for three days. I used a very cheap cabernet sauvignon and used a frozen strawberry, blueberry, raspberry mix (which I never would have thought to use before---thanks!). While I enjoyed this sangria, I did not enjoy it more than my tried and true recipe (also found on Zaar) that only takes a few hours. I'll be enjoying this for a few more days as I was careful to limit myself per your instructions. Thanks! Made for ZWT5.

OMG, this sangria is fantastic! I admit, I only used 1/2c brandy - that seemed to be the perfect amount for me because I didn't have to tweak it at all. I also didn't wait for three days (waited about 8 hours)... maybe it would have tasted even better, maybe there will be leftovers and I can sample some more tomorrow! I used frozen blackberries (and one sliced lime to complement the triple sec) and I added them right away since we were planning to drink this on the same day and the berries were luscious! I'd probably add a few more next time because they were so good. This worked well with a red grape and apple table wine. Made for ZWT5.

Very flavorful, I'm on my 2nd glass, and about to eat the fruit -- which I have been warned will put me out. It was a very pleasant way to go, although this required more patience (to wait 3 days) than I normally have. This will be a lot easier when I get an extra refrigerator just for party-planning. Thanks for sharing your version, Ingrid. Made for ZWT5 for the Bodacious Brickhouse Babes.
