"The BEST sangria recipe I've been able to hone to perfection! If you like a sweeter Sangria, use ginger ale in place of club soda."

  1. In a large pitcher or bowl, mix together the brandy, lemon juice, lemonade concentrate, orange juice, red wine, triple sec, and sugar. Float slices of lemon, orange and lime, and maraschino cherries in the mixture. Refrigerate overnight for best flavor. For a fizzy sangria, add club soda just before serving.

The brandy is the key to this recipe! My step-mother (from Madrid) showed me how to make this. Use Spanish Rioja wine. I go a bit heavier with El Presidente brandy and go a bit easier on the fruit juices since that was what I was taught. I can see where some would prefer a sweeter version but me, I like the juice from the fruit to add their signature flavors, not anything else. Make sure to let it sit for several hours before serving. A definite party-maker!!!

I thought this recipe was the most awful thing I have ever tasted. I go to Mexico every year and this was a far cry from the 'real thing'; absolutely nasty, I definitely do not recommend this!

I made it for 50 servings & everyone absolutely loved it!!!! No sugar & used gingerale instead of carbonated water; used rum, not brandy; used peach schnapps, not triple sec. Refrigerated all ingredients night before. Made it early that afternoon & sat container in an ice chest. Added cold gingerale just prior to serving. Sooooo good! Can't wait to have another BBQ to make it again!

This IS the best sangria I have ever had. Definitely needs to sit at least overnight. I omitted the sugar and used 7-Up instead of the carbonated water. FABULOUS! I made three batches for a recent cookout and it was gone in the first hour. Thanks for this definite keeper.

Before I was a nobody. Now I'm famous for my sangria.

A very forgiving recipe! We made this last night for a party, and everyone enjoyed it. (We made it last for an Easter gathering, with boisterous reviews.) Last night, one person switched from white wine to the Sangria and never went back! We made three changes because we think we are "Sangria Aficianados." We omitted the cherries and carbonated water, and added 1/2 cup Peach Schnapps, and substituted diet 7-Up for the water. Aside from the basic bones of this recipe (the wine, oranges, lemons, limes and specified liqours), many variation work. Apples and Pears work. We always add Brandy and Triple Sec and use 7-Up, but if something is not around or we run out, we find substitutes. I have friends who add dry fruit to their Sangria. (I think it is sweeter, but tasty. They used dried mango and pineapple.) This is really a great ice breaker at a party of friends or acquaintances.

Oh my goodness! This is to die for! I made it for a backyard BBQ. My only mistake was making only a double batch! I was shocked to discover that the men would pass on beer for some sangria! Just a tip, it must sit overnight or longer! Also, don't mix the sprite or soda water. It doesn't need it.

I will admit that when I first made this recipe and took a sip I wasn't sure I would like it, but letting it sit for approximately 24 hours made all the difference in the world. The flavors from the sliced fruits really come out after the Sangria sits overnight. I doubled the recipe and it nearly made two quarts. I am not a maraschino cherry fan so I left those out. If you would like, you could add a little club soda to your glass to tone it down for those who cannot handle the stronger flavors of the alcohol. My husband liked this and thinks I should make it again. I concur! Great drink for warmer weather!
