One of My Favorite Sangria Recipe’s

posted in Recipes |

Perfect before dinner on a Friday night, or for any occasion really… And why pay for it when you can just make it yourself… Its actually one of the easier drinks to make, and for those of you who aren’t too fond of wine I assure you, in this form, you cannot NOT like it.



  • 1 Bottle of red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Rioja, Zinfandel, Shiraz)
  • 1 Lemon cut into wedges
  • 1 Orange cut into wedges
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Shot brandy
  • 2 Cups ginger ale or club soda



Pour wine in the pitcher and squeeze the juice wedges from the lemon and orange into the wine. Toss in the fruit wedges (leaving out seeds if possible) and add sugar and brandy. Chill overnight. Add ginger ale or club soda just before serving.If you’d like to serve right away, use chilled red wine or just serve over lots of ice.

Addition ideas: sliced strawberries, peaches, handful of fresh blueberries, raspberries, kiwi, a shot or two of gin, brandy or rum, a cup of ginger ale, citrus soda pop or lime juice.

    Daniel… can you be more specific with your question in regards to this recipe? I think it is pretty straightforward… The additional ideas part is just an array of things you can experiment with to create a different tasting drink. I personally like sliced strawberries in place of the oranges or mixed in as well, and a shot or two of gin or rum can substitute for the brandy in the original recipe… Play around with it… Would love to hear your preferences as well.
