This is an authentic version of the popular wine drink. You can add any fruit that you want, but I find that apples and pears absorb all the rum. This one is not diluted with carbonated beverages. I have much success with red Burgundy wine and white rum, though spiced rum is nice too.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 lemon
  • 1 lime
  • 1 orange
  • 1 ½ cups rum
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 (750 milliliter) bottle dry red wine
  • 1 cup orange juice

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Have the fruit, rum, wine, and orange juice well chilled. Slice the lemon, lime and orange into thin rounds and place in a large glass pitcher. Pour in the rum and sugar. Chill in refrigerator for 2 hours to develop the flavors.
  2. 2 When ready to serve, crush the fruit lightly with a wooden spoon and stir in the wine and orange juice. Adjust sweetness to taste.

  1. I let the fruit soak in the rum and an added 1/2 cup of Triple Sec. I made this with a Merlot (Little Penguin) and with a Blackberry Merlot. It was a lot sneakier when it was made with the Blackberry Merlot, i.e. we got drunk, but it hit us from out of no where. - Read more ...
  2. I read the reviews and went with the Blackberry Merlot and cut the white sugar in half. I made a triple batch but only used a fifth of Bacardi white rum. I also soaked the fruit for 2 days turning it twice a day to make sure it all got nice and soaked. Nectarines Lemons - Read more ...
  3. OH MY!! This was fabulous! I used the spiced rum and along with the citrus I added some plum slices. If you desire a less potent Sangria cut the rum in half. The flavor is still wonderful. Freeze orange juice in ice cube trays and add a cube to each individual serving. YUM
  4. I just got back from Seville and this was so close to the real thing...Two glasses will have you GOOD for the rest of the night. Start out with less rum-- you can always add more later.
  5. This was very good as well, but I changed the recipe a bit. I used a 1.5 liter bottle of wine, 2 cups of rum, 1 cup of sugar, and 2 cups of OJ. My grandma even went wild over it. I also soaked strawberrys, pineapple, and marschino cherries in equal amounts of OJ and - Read more ...
  6. I made this for a cookout for my husband's medical school class, and it was a big hit. I used a box of cheap red wine (5 liters for $10.00)and as was suggested, I used spiced rum. I also added lots of other fruit, including apples, pears and cherries, which was really pretty in the - Read more ...
  7. Made a double batch for my husband's 50th birthday party and didn't have a drop left. Used spiced rum and made ice rings from fruit and Sprite (so they wouldn't dilute it). Fabulous!
  8. This was my first attempt at Sangria. I took the advice of others and used Blackberry Merlot, as well as spiced rum. I topped each serving with Sprite, and it was fantastic! When the Sangria was gone, I filled the pitcher with the remaining Sprite, so it could "soak up" the juices left in the - Read more ...
  9. This is a fabulous recipe!! I have shared with many friends. It was easy to make and everyone enjoyed it. Careful though. It tastes like fruit juice but you feel the effects of the alcohol later. Great to make for large parties.
  10. watch out... this is strong stuff! maybe try less rum...
