I made 2 pitchers of this. One as the recipe reads and 1 with Chablis for a white sangria. They were to die for! People were looking at me funny when I said that I was making sangria until they tasted it! Great for parties - especially during the summer when you are sitting out on the deck. I will make it again!

Great Sangria recipe. Easy to put together and even more fun to drink after a long day at work. Thanks for a winner!

DH's and my favorite Mexican restaurant serves a delcious sangria. I have been on a mission to find a recipe that sort of resembles it. This is a very close match. I made mine in a glass pitcher and added the fruit slices. Looked real pretty and tasted fantastic. The perfect drink to go along with fajitas, quesadillas, and my dad's chimichangas. Ole!!!

I've never made sangria before, but I'm so glad that this was the first recipe I tried because it is fabulous! I used Rex Goliath Merlot because it was described as "smooth and fruity" on the bottle. It was perfect! I can't wait to share this recipe at my family reunion next week. Everyone will love it!

I planned this for a Cousin's Tapas Party, July 2, 2009, at my house. It was for my cousins and their famlies. (We are a big family bunch.) I admit my "brain" was on food that day when everone arrived. My DS-in-law asked about the Sangria and offered to make it, if I had a recipe. I flipped him yours. (My mind was still on "food".) He took your recipe and my bottle of Chablis and a bottle of Merlot and made a pitcher of each. Some "loved" the white and some "loved" the red. All wanted the recipe. Me? Thank you. Your recipe was a "great" success and helped to make my Cousin's Tapas a great success. Thank you.

My wife wanted me to make a Sangria for a party she was having. Decided to try your recipe. Used a cabernet and made a double batch. Followed the recipe exactly as stated. When I got home I seen the pitchers were empty and my wife said she had 7 guests who wanted the recipe!! They all said this was the best Sangria ever. I hope next time I can taste it!!!!

This stuff is fabulous! I only made a few changes: I sliced a whole lemon and a whole mandarin orange and added to the jar and I sliced a pint of strawberries in half or thirds and mixed in. Since my property is full of edibles I had Meyer lemons for the juice and slices, a Naval orange for the juice and the juice of a Ruby Red Grapefruit. Let all chill and maserate in the frig overnight. I also substituted a bottle of my beloved Shiraz. Cheers to me!!!!! and thanks for this recipe!
