This sangria was a fantastic hit at my 4th party. The only thing I changed was the fruit.

Can't wait to try your version.. I'm betting it is better than the Olive Gardens.. especially considering the OG's Sangria comes in a box already made.. very disappointing considering the price but then again... NOTHING is fresh there.. bagged sauce, etc.

I have never had Olive Garden sangria before, although I have enjoyed sangria at many other bars and restaurants. I first tried this after letting it chill for 5 hours and it was practically undrinkable! It was WAY too sweet! I tried it again after 24 hours and it was better, but still much too sweet for my taste. Maybe this is what O.G. snagria tastes like, but it's not for me. Sorry.

I made some last night! It is amazing!!!! I also used Lambrusco. I couldn't wait and tried some after 4-5 hours, it was good, but when I tried it the next day I couldn't stop drinking it :). Tastes better than Olive Garden's. The longer you let it sit the better it tastes. You will not be disappointed!

I made this last night for New Years Eve and it was a huge hit!!! Instead of using 9dollar Lambrusco I used a 2 buck cabernet wine I found at walmart and it still tasted perfect!!! Everyone loved it!!! But becareful because it sneaks up on you after one glass we were starting to feel the effect. I had everyone ask me for the recipe! I will be making this again and again!!! So glad I found this recipe!!! Thank you for posting!!!

I have made this probably a good 10 times now and everyone asks me for this recipe! It's AWESOME! I save old wine bottle and rebottle with a wine pump and it last for a long time.
