1 1/4 cups
Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and sliced
sliced fresh peaches
bananas, peeled and sliced
cinnamon sticks, crushed
lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage
It was excellent. I would have liked to give it 5 stars for kid friendliness, but I'm not sure that children should be drinking wine (even if it is mixed with lots of fruit and lemon-lime soda).
I would leave out the bananas. It was kinda weird! Otherwise pretty good
We doubled up the recipe for a large crowd and everyone loved it!
I hadn't made Sangria before until my boyfriend's 36th b-day recently. . . the beverage was a hit. Many comments that it was really good. I DID add Jamaican Rum to the mix though. This recipe made 6 pitchers.
I got so many compliments on this sangria. I made it w/ a papaya/mango/melon mix of frozen fruits and it was delicious.
I had 1/2 bottle of red wine to use up, so I scaled this recipe down to 6 servings. I actually butchered her recipe. I used what I had on hand: red wine, sprite, fresh peaches, fresh strawberries, and sugar. Drank it right away, instead of letting it sit for 6 hours. It was perfect, and just what I was looking for on the hot humid day! I'm not the greatest at following directions exactly, they're always a guide! Either way this is a keeper!
Very good. I had never had sangria prior to making this, and I was pleasantly surprised. I took the advice of another recipe and added about two ounces of Cointreau and sliced strawberries. My mom even loved it, and she's a wine snob.
I added a lot more fruit, but omitted the bananas. Used about a cup (ish) of rum, half cup (ish) of Sloe Gin and half cup (ish) of Triple Sec, and a full bottle of some red wine. I let it sit for a bout 4 hours, added two liters of lemon lime soda, served over ice and sprinkled with a tiny bit of cinnamon. I drank way too much, it was that yummy!
