It was excellent. I would have liked to give it 5 stars for kid friendliness, but I'm not sure that children should be drinking wine (even if it is mixed with lots of fruit and lemon-lime soda).-01 Apr 2002
I hadn't made Sangria before until my boyfriend's 36th b-day recently. the beverage was a hit. Many comments that it was really good. I DID add Jamaican Rum to the mix though. This recipe made 6 pitchers.-11 Aug 2003
A Delicious and Easy Sangria Recipe
Sangria is probably one of my favorite drinks ever. It’s a perfectly refreshing drink for a warm day, and it’s so easy to throw together.
This recipe is an absolute staple in our home – during the warm months (which is most of the year in Texas), it is pretty much a constant presence in our refrigerator. We bring it to almost every party we attend, and it’s my go-to drink for when we have people over.
Basically, it’s the perfect recipe, and there’s nothing I love more than setting a big ol’ pitcher on our DIY outdoor bar cart and having some friends over!
I’m pregnant this summer, so I’m not able to partake in it like I normally do (what a bummer, right?!) but I’m telling you, this will be one of the first recipes I throw together as soon as our baby boy is born at the end of the summer! Longtime readers may recognize this recipe and post (the photos were taken in our old kitchen!) – it’s actually from a few years back, but I’ve been wanting to try out sharing some more recipes here on the blog and I figured that reviving this one might be a fun place to start. Let me know what you think – if you’re interested in seeing more recipe posts over here I’d be happy to oblige!
But, enough talking about why I love this easy sangria recipe so much – you’re dying to know how it’s done, right? Let’s hop to it.
Let’s start off with the cast of characters:
- Strawberries – High in water content, strawberries are a very healthy fruit. They are also a great source of vitamin C, folate, potassium, and manganese.
- Blueberries – These sweet little berries are the perfect addition to this patriotic sangria recipe. While they don’t have many calories, they do have a lot of vitamin C, vitamin K, and manganese too.
- Melon – If you haven’t had canary melon yet, you’ll be super happy to know that it is healthy. It’s a fantastic source of vitamin C and vitamin A.
- White Grape Juice – I love the addition of white grape juice to this cocktail. It’s sweet and helps enhance the other flavors. Just be sure to reach for 100% juice, so you don’t end up with a bunch of sugars you don’t want.
- Brandy – Adding a little bit of brandy is a great way to include a little alcohol, but it’s not overwhelming like other cocktails. It’s easy to adjust the flavor by adding more or less, depending on what you like.
- Dry White Wine – Stick with dry white wine, so the sangria doesn’t end up overly sweet. Unless you like super sweet drinks. Dry wine gives the sangria a great balance.

The beloved summer refresher, made special with the addition of fresh orange juice, mixed berries, and a hint of cinnamon.
- FOR THE SANGRIA BASE:
- 2 bottles (750ml Bottle) Cheap, But Not Horrible, Fruity Red Wine
- ¾ cups Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
- ½ cups Simple Syrup (See Note) Or Superfine Sugar, Or To Taste
- 1 teaspoon Cinnamon (make It A Generous Teaspoon)
- Generous Splash Of Cointreau Or Grand Marnier
- Generous Splash Of Cognac
- FOR THE FINISHING TOUCHES:
- 2 cups 7-up Or Sprite
- 2 cups Mixed Fresh Berries (Blueberries, Sliced Strawberries, Blackberries, Raspberries—Your Choice!)
Combine wine and orange juice in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine sugar or simple syrup and cinnamon, then add that mixture to the wine. Splash in the good stuff. Stir, and taste. Since you’ll be adding 7-Up and fruit later, it should be a bit more intense and slightly less sweet than you’d expect the final version to be, but the flavor should be in the general area of greatness. Allow flavors to blend for at least an hour. If not serving the same night, transfer to an airtight container and keep in the fridge.
Just before serving, add the fresh fruit and 7-Up, using as much soda as you like to lighten it up for your guests. Don’t add ice to the sangria itself, or it will get diluted quickly. Instead, add ice to the glasses and pour the sangria over, making sure to include some fruit in each serving.
Note: Simple syrup is equal parts water and sugar, boiled together for a few minutes and then cooled. A great way to sweeten cocktails, because it doesn’t leave any “grit” from the sugar in the drinks.
- 1 bottle of red wine - ideally a Spanish wine like a Rioja or a Tempranillo, but don't spend much, the other flavors are very strong.
- 1/2 cup of brandy
- 1/2 cup of triple sec
- 1/2 cup frozen lemonade concentrate
- 1/3 cup orange juice
- 2 cups sparkling water – I used a natural lemon lime one from IGA

- 1/3 to 1/2 cup sugar

- 1 bottle dry red wine, chilled
- 2 lemons, thinly sliced
- 2 cups seltzer or club soda
- Ice cubes, for serving
In a large pitcher, combine orange juice, sugar, and brandy stir well to dissolve sugar. Add wine, orange slices, lemon slices, and seltzer stir to combine. Fill glasses with ice before serving.
Nothing says “summertime” quite like a cold glass of sparkling sangria, especially when there’s bright chunks of fresh fruit! Whether you’re enjoying the season’s sunshine by reading your favorite book by the pool or entertaining guests in your backyard, this sparkling sangria is the perfect accompaniment.
