I'm looking for an easy, flavorful sangria recipe. Thanks!

    Mix about 12 oz each of frozen cherries, raspberries, and blueberries with 2 bottles of pinot noir. Sit in fridge overnight. The next day, mix with 1 small bottle of brandy and thin slices of oranges, tangerines, and apples (I like Fuji). Serve over ice topped with a sparkling wine or mineral water - I usually do a 1:1 ratio.

      I make it the extremely lazy way, which is probably the wrong way to make it, but well, everyone still drinks it anyway. :P

      2 parts red wine
      1 part orange juice (preferably smooth)
      1 orange sliced
      1 lemon sliced
      1 lime sliced
      1 grapefruit sliced (not necessary, but it still works imo)

      Stir everything together into a glass pitcher. Let flavors mix and allow it to sit in the refrigerator overnight.

      I don't think it's the best recipe, but I've made it very quickly for impromptu bbqs and people don't seem to mind drinking it. It tastes better if you let the flavors mix.

        this is my favourite recipe

        1.5 bottles dry red wine
        1/4 c granulated sugar
        1/2 c brandy
        1/2 c orange liqueur
        1/4 c gin
        1 large lemon, thinly sliced with the peel cut into a long spiral
        1 large orange, thinly sliced with the peel cut into a long spiral
        1/2 lime, thinly sliced with the peel cut into a long spiral
        green seedless grapes
        club soda
        ice cubes
        apple, orange and lemon wheels for garnish

        combine all ingredients, except soda and ice, in a large glass pitcher. Stir well, cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours. I fill a glass with ice cubes and pour sangria into glass and top up with soda. This way you can make it as strong or weak as you like. It is a very boozy recipe so I tend to use 1 part sangria to 2 parts soda. Serve immediately. Garnish with fruit.

          Gin? That's like using Vodka and calling it a Martini.

            Don't knock it until you try it! Gin is the secret ingredient.

          You can find lots of different recipes online, but it really depends on personal tastes. I really enjoy the red-wine Sangria they serve at the Barcelona restaurants in Connecticut, so I asked for the recipe. Of course, they weren't going to give me the actual recipe, but they gave me some general ingredients.

          Here is a basic recipe to follow. Feel free to adjust it: 1 bottle borseo (red) wine, 1/2 c. orange juice, 1/2 c. liqueur 45, 1/4 c. brandy, 1/4 c. amaretto, 1 unpleeled sliced orange, 1 unpeeled Granny Smith apple in skinny wedges, some club soda or sparkling water. Mix all together in a pitcher and refrigerate. Serve over ice with fresh slices of orange.

          I hope this helps.
