Default Anyone Like Sangria?

I had sangria in a restaurant recently, and really enjoyed it. I've made my own twice now, and although it's a little different tasting than what the restaurant served, it's very good. It's just a "basic" sangria, but there are lots of variations. It's a very refreshing drink, nice on a warm summer evening. Here is the receipe I've been using.

Ingredients
1 bottle Rioja (other red wines will do nicely too)
2 cups ginger ale
1/4 cup brandy
1/2 cup Triple Sec
4 slices orange
2 cups orange juice

Mix all together, and let sit in a fridge overnight. The next day, pour some over ice cubes and toss in a garnish of fresh fruit. Enjoy!


I happen to have a case of Lindeman's Cabernet/Merlot on hand, so that's what I've been using. Cheap Korbel brandy and DeKuyper's Triple Sec. Anyone have receipes they like?

The sangrias I've had used very similar recipes. To me a sangria is a lot like lemonade in that on certain hot, sultry southern summer days no other drink will quench and refresh quite like it. There are a few days each summer that just cry out for a sangria and nothing else will do.

Great, now I want one! Thanks!

Apple or pear is good to add as they can stay crisp in the Sangria. Thanks for the recipe.

I agree with Moses, I have also used Pineapple and Asian Pear in white Sangria. I love it all. Great stuff for the summer BBQ!! Thanks for the recipe

Sangria is a great way of getting rid of a wine you don't like as well as making a hot summer day friendly wine.

I never add anything fizzy to mine, I expect it to be flat, and I never add brandy, just the triple sec.

I go by taste so I don't have a recipe, I will add a bit of sugar depending on how much sugar comes out of the orange or other fruit that I add. I have used strawberries, blueberries, cherries as well as oranges, I find Kiwi, Lemons and Limes can be a bit distracting. I made some crappy wine a couple of years ago that was undrinkable as is, but made wicked sangria. I make it with at minimum 2 bottles of wine .... the more the merrier.

Whats not to love. Never done ginger ale, usually use lemon-lime soda. I either go the apple/pear routine or the orange/lime/grapefruit route.

Default Re: Anyone Like Sangria?

I made up a 7 liter batch of white sangria for a party Saturday. My own variation based on about 3-4 different recipes (or 'suggestions', as I call them). A nice change of pace from the red sangria, which can feel a bit heavy when the temperature rises above 90 degrees.

5 liters Almaden box wine (Crisp White or whatever)
1 liter brandy
5 cups water
6 cinnamon sticks & shake or 2 of powdered cinnamon
2-1/2 to 3 cups sugar

Mix the water, cinnamon & sugar in a pan & on medium heat until simmering, let simmer 10-15 minutes. Cool mixture, discard cinnamon sticks.
Add cooled mixture to wine & brandy.

Add 6 sliced peaches, 2-3 sliced apples, 2 sliced oranges, 1 sliced lemon.
Stir/shake & let sit overnight in the light of the moon.

Serve on ice. Have another. Have another. Repeat as necessary.

I made some sangria tonight with white wine, and substituted a cup of pineapple juice for of one of the cups of orange juice. Also added some lemon and lime slices. Really good.

FWIW, on a whim I mixed half a glass of Blue Moon beer with half a glass of sangria. Really, really good.

Off to make another. I can't be held responsible for whatever I type later this evening.

I made sangria for the first time this summer for a fund raising party hosted at my moms house, we made white and red with standard-ish recipes minus the brandy and they were a hit. I don't know if sams club still has them but we got 3 gallon beverage dispensers (clear) which looked nice as well because you see all the delicious fruit. I will definetly be making it again
