Summer Sangria & Classic Sangria

"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!

    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.


I am a very lucky lady. I recently moved to a very small town in New Brunswick, Canada with my wonderful husband who is my best friend. Very fortunate to have a cherished son, wonderful daughter in law and adorable granddaughter and cute wee grandson. We are very blessed. A big thank you to everyone that has made my recipes... hope you enjoyed them.
