How long will Sangria last in the fridge?

I cut up a bunch of fruit (mango's, apples, and peaches) and left it to soak in red wine for a Sangria base.
That was 2 days long will this last?

  1. Though I've never had Sangria left over for more than a few days, I think it actually tastes better once its been sitting. I'd say you still have a few more days on it.

      okay, I'm on day five, and mine still tastes great....but I'm just curious if it could taste good, yet make me sick?
      2 cups fruit soaked in peach brandy overnight
      2 bottles red wine
      1 bottle almond champagne
      2 liter bottle hawaiian punch
      this is the best sangria I ever had! Be very, very careful.......

        I think you're ok still... fresh fruit lasts more than 5 days, doesn't it? And the alcohol is serving to preserve it...

        I am very curious about your almond champagne. Sounds delish.

    2. I made some Sangria a week or so ago, and somehow still had a little bit left after 3 days. Even so, it was still extremely tasty on it's third day, and could imagine it still good for at least another day. Although I would maybe change some of the fruit I used if I was hoping to keep it on the longer side.

      1. be aware that citrus left too long will impart a bitter taste from the rind

        1. I've found that a quart of Sangria will last about one hour. The second one will last just a little longer.

            Atleast a week if you use fresh fruits

          2. Keep the fruit separated and it could last, if covered tightly, for about two days without losing too much of the fizz imparted by either the club soda and/or sparkling wine you may have used. Just like anything else carbonated, no air if possible. If your recipe did not have anything bubbly, it can last three or four days easily. I have heard a week, but that has never happened in my house. Separating the fruit and soaking it in either a little sangria or the original brandy or flavored brandy keeps the fruit from making the sangria cloudy.
