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 just love Sangria. Thanks
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 is THE BEST sangria recipe EVER! I made this for a ladies night and every single woman wanted the recipe =) So yummy and easy!! Thanks!!
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!
Fabulous! Used merlot & it came out great.
