DIRECTIONS

  • Note: Because of the large volume I suggest making this in batches. This is one reason for the vagueness of the measurements.
  • Mix the wine with 3/4 cup sugar. Set rest of sugar to the side.
  • Add Liquors and stir.
  • Slowly add 1/2 ltr lime seltzer and stir.
  • Taste now and add any ingredients to taste. There SHOULD be a bit of a liquor bite to it, but it should NOT be overpowering. Likewise it should be sweet but not send you into a diabetic coma. It should also have a decent fizz to it, if it's too thick, add seltzer. Just experement.
  • Once you've got the taste you want, add the slices of fruit. I've found that the sangria i get in America tends to be loaded down with fruit. Remember that it's more of a garnish and only adds a bit of flavor. If you need a ton of fruit to get the desired flavor, you haven't got the right mixture.
  • Have fun experementing, and enjoy it. It's perfect for summer days and bbqs.
  • For another great (and much simpler) spanish drink check out my recipe for Tinto de Verano.
