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!

We made the summer sangria, and served it at an engagement party we hosted. We weren't drinking, but the the guests really enjoyed it. We forgot the strawberries in the fridge, but I'm sure that would've made it even better! Oops! Gives us a good excuse to do it again! Thanks for a nice twist on classic sangria, Baby Kato!

Had 3 couples for dinner tonight and made this.. We went through the first pitcher of Classic Sangria in no time, so made another pitcher. It was awesome!!! Was great with our Cabernet-Shiraz. Everyone enjoyed it-One guy even asked how I made it as he wants to make it. A perfect light warm summer night drink. Thanks for posting.

This summer sangria is fantastic. I made it and took it to a cookout. Every one loved it! As one person said, "It's delicious and very pretty too!" It is very light and refreshing, perfect for hot summer days.

I'd forgotten that I made this for the cooking class I taught until I saw the competition for a tapas party menu! I made the classic Sangria. Same comment as others, just sweet enough without being too sweet. I'll definitely make this again!

Made the summer sangria for a baby shower for about 50 people and everyone absolutely loved it. PUt it in a clear lemonade cooler and let everyone help themselves. It is a great inexpensive drink to make for large parties. Directed them to recipezaar for all the great recipes.

I made this for dinner with my in-laws last night. I did add a tad bit more of the triple sec and a little more sugar, but all in all, it was wonderful, and my mother in law especially loved it. She said other Sangria's she has had are much too sweet, but that this was just perfect. I will definately try the Summer Sangria next. Thanks!

I took the summer sangria to a 50th birthday party and it was gone in no time! Everyone loved it. One person commented that it tastes just like summer. I will definitely make it again.
