Sangria by the Pros

Recipe by  

"I found a good sangria recipe and headed to the liquor store to purchase the alcohol. In line, ahead of me, was a man who said he has been a bartender for twenty years now, and that the recipe needed a few touch-ups if I wanted to make it like the Pros. So, here is what he professed to me, muchos thanks to the other submitters for their delicious versions."

This recipe is amazing! I doubled the recipe, but kept the fruit in the same amount & it was the perfect ratio. I feel like if there was less liquid (as called for in the original quantity of the recipe), it would be too chunky & perhaps difficult to drink. The flavor of this was just right! Yum! **Also, just a little tip for anyone who hasn't thought of it: Instead of adding the soda into the pitcher, I just topped off each glass with a splash of it as I served them, so the soda wouldn't go flat throughout the evening! This worked great!**

The real deal! Delicious. Took this to a party and it was gone in minutes. Try adding a little sugar if the red wine is too dry.

I made a triple batch of this sangria and thought maybe I had made too much but by the end of the evening it was gone and people were asking for more. At first it was too tart so I added a bit of sugar and that smoothed it right out. Yummy.

I have a very similar recipe that I use: without cherries, lemon or lime, but with a 6oz can or pineapple juice and 1/4 cup of brandy is replaced with orange liqueur. It's delicious!

Excellent recipe, with some changes. 1) Left out the cherries and pineapple. 2) Used cherry brandy. 3) Doubled the red wine, OJ, and soda. Served in a punch bowl and it was demolished very quickly.

I followed this recipe to the T with the exception of the apple and it was amazing! Everyone loved it! I only had time to have the fruit soaking in the brandy for one hour...but I can imagine what it would have been like had I soaked the fruit for the two hours or overnight! The cherries were expensive...but well worth it.

WOW! Better than most restaurant sangrias! Easy to change up the fruit to taste! Highly recommend!
