I didn't have enough triple sec and was out of orange juice. Mixed up what I had which was everything else. I only had 1/3rd the required amount of triple sec. I gave it a sample before going to get orange juice and more triple sec. It tasted great! Like all other good sangria's I've had. Got oj and ts, added, tasted again. Not as good. Left if fridge overnight. Again, not as good. The triple sec is just way to strong. Adds that synthetic orange type of flavor triple sec has and is just overbearing. I think using about 1/3 the recommended sugar is also a good idea. I didn't use carbonated water or ginger ale. Next time I make this I'm going to do it exactly to the recipe, but with only 1/4 of the oj, 1/4 the triple sec, and 1/3rd the sugar. I'm betting that will nail it.
I'd advise you to taste as you add though, and add these 3 ingredients last. Dial it in how just how you like it.
