"An easy and inexpensive twist on sangria that is sure to please! My friends ask me to bring this to parties and it's easy to double the recipe or add more fruit as needed."

1 (750 milliliter) bottle
dry white wine
This was awesome. I've never made sangria before and wanted something simplre for an outdoor summer event. I used a little apricot brandy and a little less sugar - depending on the wine you might not even need sugar. Thanks for sharing Sara!
Way too much citrus, it was so bitter. I'll change the fruit around next time.
Best if you can make a few hours ahead or the night before to allow flavors to blend and the drink to chill - then you don't need to add ice which dilutes the drink. I used a moscato which is an extremely sweet wine to begin with, so I use 1/2 the sugar. I recommend superfine or powdered sugar which dissolves more easily. I zest the citrus into the liquid before cutting the fruit which puts more fruit flavor in the sangria. I don't use grapes because I don't think they absorb the wine nor add flavor to the mix. I save adding the soda until just before serving to keep the fizz. Club soda is good, but sometimes I use ginger beer (from Trader Joe's) for a nice spicy snap. Salud!
This was a really beautiful and delicious treat. I served this with desert, so I changed a few things. I used white zinfandel, so I skipped adding the sugar. I also traded out the grapes for pitted cherries, and the 4 limes for 2 large oranges. Also, I used peach schnapps instead of the brandy. Yummy!
This recipe is delicious! I needed something simple and tasty for a green & white bridal shower I was co-hosting - and people LOVED it! Only thing I changed was I used a guava rum instead of brandy because I already had it in my bar. And then I used limes, green grapes, green apples, and kiwi. I would definitely recommend!
I just made this for a secret santa party and it is delicious! Instead of putting it on ice, I combined the wine, brandy, sugar (and a half full bottle of champagne that I opened a few weeks ago), then added the fruit minus the grapes. I ended up adding orange slices and a splash of orange and apple juice. Its sweet, but really good! I let the flavors blend in the fridge for 5 hours, but I bet it would be even better over night!
Very refreshing and tasty. Wanted something light for a cocktail tonight, and this hit the spot. Hubby liked it too. Thanks for the recipe.
I made this for a New Year's party and it was absolutely delicious! As another reviewer suggested, I used apricot brandy and lemon-lime soda. I plopped a few sliced strawberries in my glass instead of the lime, lemon, apples and grapes. Wonderful!
