I had a girlie party a few weeks ago and this Sangria was a HUGE HIT!! I had to make enough for 48 servings...I used 1-4L bottle of Blush, 1-1/2 gal of pineapple/orange juice, 1-750ml bottle of MALIBU MANGO, 2 cups of sugar and 2-2L bottles of diet 7-up. I used orange slices, apples, black berries, strawberries and 2-20oz. cans of pineapple chunks! Even for my hardcore drinkers, this one was strong and SUPER YUMMY!!

Just ok

OK, this is one STRONG drink. We had to mix it with gingerale before we could drink it - great flavor, but watch out!!!

Call me a lightweight, but this stuff was STRONG. I only used a cup of rum and was FEELING NO PAIN after a tall cool glass of it at a summer cookout. Great easy recipe, but I'll probably cut back on the rum next time so I can taste the red wine.

Jill, you rock!! This is an awsome recipe! I did marinate the fruit separate and trust me, we had alot of ideas at our neighborhood meeting after drinking this!! Thanks again for an awsome recipe!

Excellent! I don't particularly like the rum taste, so I gave it a four star. Also, I used rasberries instead of cherries, because cherries give you gas. Be cautious, I was borderline drunk after a big goblet of it.

Superbly Yummy! I (of course) made some alterations to the recipe, following others advice and what intuitively seemed right. I used half watermelon rum (1 cup in each step), cut the sugar in half (though I think that it could have gone without having used the melon rum!), used frozen strawberries (not the best, fresh would have been better, for sure!), fresh apricots, peaches and pluots and the canned pineapple. I used Orange Strawberry Mango juice (see? sugar would have worked!). I used a magnum of Crane Lake cabernet sauvignon ($4!) and next time may try a white! The gingerale was a MUST!!! Too strong w/out...yummy, but dangerous!! Cheers!

This was excellent, a real hit at the party. We just put the fruit in with the wine and juice instead of soaking them in the rum etc., but if you want more of a kick, go ahead and soak them.
