About this recipe: I've added fruits to this classic Spanish recipe, and it's always a hit. They look so pretty floating in the glass. Perfect for barbecues!
I decided to try and make sangria for the first time for my annual cinco de mayo party. I was a little hesitant at first because I was not sure which type of red wine to buy. After deciding to use a merlot, I added lemons, limes, and oranges and pineapple. I didn't have any cherries, so I left those out. Everyone loved this so much that I wish I had doubled the recipe as it was gone in about 10mins. Will make this one again. - 09 May 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I used Merlot wine and 2.5 cups of lemon-lime soda. For fruit, I used 1/2 pineapples, 1 apple, 1/2 lemon, 1/2 lime, 1/2 orange. It tasted WONDERFUL! I had to go out and buy more wine though because the recipe that is posted was enough for me to drink alone!!! - 13 May 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a nice refreshing beverage, that you would want to make all of the time. - 08 Sep 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
