I just love summer and all the wonderful drinks we use to try and cool down. I hope you enjoy these two very different sangrias. I usually add extra fruit to the sangrias, peach wedges to the Classic Sangria and pear slices to the Summer Sangria.

This is a good Sangria - made it for ZWT8 and am sitting at my dining room table sipping it while looking out over the ocean. Soooo relaxing and the sangria is the perfect accompaniment. I followed the recipe for the Classic Sangria, but did add some diced apples because I LOVE the taste of them when they've been steeping in the brew! Thanks, Baby Kato!

I made this for DDs birthday party and was very much enjoyed by the ladies. I made the classic one. I still have one glass left in the fridge with the citrus slices sitting in it and it taste like a vermouth. Thanks for sharing.

I made the Classic Sangria last night, and it was good! At first, I thought the red wine flavour was taking over everything a bit much, so I added a little extra of the brandy and cointreau (I couldn't get triple sec), and an extra cup of soda water, and it was perfect!
