  1. 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.

      1. 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.

        1. 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.
