The BEST sangria recipe I’ve been able to hone to perfection! If you like a sweeter Sangria, use ginger ale in place of club soda.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ½ cup brandy
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ⅓ cup frozen lemonade concentrate
  • ⅓ cup orange juice
  • 1 (750 milliliter) bottle dry red wine
  • ½ cup triple sec
  • 1 lemon, sliced into rounds
  • 1 orange, sliced into rounds
  • 1 lime, sliced into rounds
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 8 maraschino cherries
  • 2 cups carbonated water

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 In a large pitcher or bowl, mix together the brandy, lemon juice, lemonade concentrate, orange juice, red wine, triple sec, and sugar. Float slices of lemon, orange and lime, and maraschino cherries in the mixture. Refrigerate overnight for best flavor. For a fizzy sangria, add club soda just before serving.

  1. Before I was a nobody. Now I'm famous for my sangria.
  2. Awesome.... I was making this for a large group and had a hard time figguring out how much alcohol to buy. Here is what I bought to make enough to make 5 times the recipe (30 servings). 4L jug of Carlo Rossi Sangria wine, 750 ml bottel of Blackberry Brandy, 750 ml bottel of triple - Read more ...
  3. A very forgiving recipe! We made this last night for a party, and everyone enjoyed it. (We made it last for an Easter gathering, with boisterous reviews.) Last night, one person switched from white wine to the Sangria and never went back! We made three changes because we think we are "Sangria Aficianados." We omitted - Read more ...
  4. The brandy is the key to this recipe! My step-mother (from Madrid) showed me how to make this. Use Spanish Rioja wine. I go a bit heavier with El Presidente brandy and go a bit easier on the fruit juices since that was what I was taught. I can see where some would prefer a - Read more ...
  5. Oh my goodness! This is to die for! I made it for a backyard BBQ. My only mistake was making only a double batch! I was shocked to discover that the men would pass on beer for some sangria! Just a tip, it must sit overnight or longer! Also, don't mix the sprite or soda - Read more ...
  6. I will admit that when I first made this recipe and took a sip I wasn't sure I would like it, but letting it sit for approximately 24 hours made all the difference in the world. The flavors from the sliced fruits really come out after the Sangria sits overnight. I doubled the recipe and - Read more ...
  7. I made it for 50 servings & everyone absolutely loved it!!!! No sugar & used gingerale instead of carbonated water; used rum, not brandy; used peach schnapps, not triple sec. Refrigerated all ingredients night before. Made it early that afternoon & sat container in an ice chest. Added cold gingerale just prior to serving. Sooooo - Read more ...
  8. I thought this recipe was the most awful thing I have ever tasted. I go to Mexico every year and this was a far cry from the 'real thing'; absolutely nasty I definitely do not recommend this!
  9. This IS the best sangria I have ever had. Definitely needs to sit at least overnight. I omitted the sugar and used 7-Up instead of the carbonated water. FABULOUS! I made three batches for a recent cookout and it was gone in the first hour. Thanks for this definite keeper.
