    Did some last weekend for a party and it was a hit.

    1.5 litre jug (that's right) of Carlo Rossi Paisano.
    1 cup brandy
    1 cup triple sec
    Juice of 2 oranges
    Juice of 1 lemon
    Simple syrup to taste

    I added lemon and orange slices plus peach and apple slices. Let it sit overnight.

      This is my favorite red sangria recipe, simple and strong:
      750mL red wine (can be cheap! I use Frontera Carmenere, which is $5/bottle)
      1/4c sugar
      1/4c Triple Sec
      1/8c brandy (optional)
      1/4c orange juice (fresh squeezed is best)
      1 orange, thinly sliced
      1 lemon, thinly sliced
      club soda (optional)

      Muddle sugar, OJ, orange and lemon slices. Add wine, triple sec, and brandy (if using), and stir well. Refrigerate 2-8 hours. Serve over ice with splash of club soda.

      White Sangria (great on a hot, humid day):
      750 white wine
      1/4c peach brandy or peach schnapps
      1/2c - 1c fresh squeezed OJ
      1/2c - 1/4c sugar (I actually don't always add sugar...depends on the wine used)
      1 peach, thinly sliced
      1 orange, thinly sliced
      1 lemon, thinly sliced
      Green grapes, frozen

      Mix all ingredients together (minus grapes). Refrigerate 1-2 hours. Serve over ice with frozen grapes as garnish.

        For a red wine sangria, this is my go-to: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/4726...

          Are you looking for red or white? More alcohol or less? Sangria, I've found, is kind of personal in being "great."

          My recipe:
          1 bottle (750mL) pinot noir
          1 bottle cab. sauvignon
          1 bottle of brandy (VS is fine, no sense in tossing the XO in here)
          1 bag frozen berries
          1 bag frozen cherries
          1 bag frozen peaches
          1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar (or omit if you choose, I usually do)

          Mix and put in fridge overnight (or longer). Before drinking, float a few slice of lemons and oranges in the pitcher and top off with a sparkling beverage of your choosing - I've used anything from soda water to a cheap sparkling wine, which is my current preference.
