This is a great recipe, it is virtually the same as the one given to us about ten years ago by a friend living in Tenerife and which we have used every summer since. It looks better the way you do it, though.
It was a wonderful recipe, I did make some alterations however. I made 3 trays of Sierra mist ice cubes with frozen raspberries in them. So I had these deep red ice cubes in the Sangria. I also allowed the orange slices to marinate in with the rest of the raspberries. I added all of them together and made enough for 45 people and it went!
This is terrific. We used our homemade wine to make this and it was awesome - will be doing this for Thanksgiving Eve as well.
