I volunteered to bring Sangria. What is your favorite recipe?

    Sangria is Spanish. If you brought margaritas or made up micheladas or cervezas preparadas, that would be Mexican.

      I think that sangria is pretty common in Mexico, as well as different parts of Central and South America...

        The others won't work for my group because they aren't big hard liquor drinkers and not everyone in the group drinks beer which is why I asked for sangria.

        I can go to my local Mexican restaurant and get a Sangria. Everyone who works in the restaurant is from Mexico. Maybe I should suggest they take their sangria off the menu.

        i don't have a favorite, but here's a recipe that adds tequila to sangria, rather than brandy...

          I love my special recipe chilli. Everyone loves it (& they should with the amount of money it costs to make but its all well worth it). We have it over thai rice with peas & sweetcorn in spring onions & cheese on top with guacamole, frijolemole, tomato & coriander salsa & tortilla chips on the side. The kids LOVE it when it "CHILLI FRIDAY!"

            Try Googling Jose Andres Sangria. He has white sangrias, red sangrias, even a cava sangria!

                His cava sangria with Licor 43 is outstanding. I have the recipe somewhere if you'd like to try it.

                  I found it on Epicurious. Thanks for the recommendation.

                One of my favorite taquerias used to offer white port margaritas that were quite popular- regular old margaritas except for the booze.

                  Here is a rink to a sangria recipe developed by a Houston bookclub posted in a SAVEUR e-mail I received today.
