"This very refreshing and light sangria is perfect for hot game days. I use 'Real Sangria' from the wine section at the local grocer. It's a dark bottle with an orange label."

I made this recipe for a group and it was a huge hit! Although I made it exactly as the recipe instructs, I like the fact that you can play around with the sweetness by reducing the sugar, replacing the club soda with ginger ale, or increasing the amount of club soda used!
By far the easiest and best Sangria recipe I have come across. After posting this review I did try another Sangria recipe using orange and lemon slices versus juice however I like this recipe the best. An update... I tried using Real Sangria and folowing this recipe but I like using a Columbia Crest cabernet or merlot. I still think this recipe is the best I have come across.
This Sangria was the best I ever tasted. I prepared it for a couples gathering at my home. All of the women loved it. The men tried it also, and loved it as well. It was easy to make. I made it the night before the party and had to keep my husband from sampling.
I chose this sangria recipe for my girls gathering at my home because it looked easy and I had all the ingredients on hand to make it- Let me tell you...It was a HUGE hit! Everyone loved it and several are using it for their upcoming events! It's very tasty and refereshing! Perfect summer-time treat!
This recipe is really easy, and I got lots of compliments on it! FYI one bottle of wine = a little over 3 cups of wine. The recipe filled a standard-sized pitcher, including fruit. If you use 2 cups of pre-made lemonade instead of lemon juice like I did, you can just put in 1/2 cup sugar (and add more to taste if you want). I used two-buck Chuck shiraz, which worked really well, and cut up an orange, apple, and pear to float. I lived in Spain for awhile, and this tastes a lot closer to the real deal than I expected! :) gracias
A bit too sweet. I only had apricot brandy and it worked well. Might have made it more sweet. Otherwise, excellent. I had some not-so-great wine that I wanted to use. I didn't really want to go to the time or effort to buy fruit, cut it up, and wait for it to soak. I just wanted a drink with my bad wine. I had all the stuff on hand. Yummy.
Good sangria! Served alongside Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup by Elena that I made tonight for my bf and I. I really liked this, but my bf said it was just "OK" (he thought it tasted like fruit punch, but I think it was the "wine" talking... haha!). Since I am not a huge wine fan, I thought this was great! The taste of wine did exist, but I do agree that it was very subtle. Prepared almost to a T... my only changes were to use sangria wine (as opposed to red wine) and ginger ale instead of club soda. Additionally, I added 1 sm. Red Delicious apple, 1 Granny Smith apple and 2 Anjou pears (peels on). Made half a batch (which was plenty for the two of us). Oh, and I purchased my sangria wine from Caputo's Italian market, but later that day saw the stuff that Katie recommended (i.e. "Real Sangria") at a different chain grocery store - and it was more expensive). Thanks for sharing such an easy recipe! I'm sure this would pair nicely with paella.
This is a great recipe. We added some lime juice to taste instead of lemon. We have served this at a ribbon cutting and keno party and it was a huge hit both times.
