2017-07-29. Quick and easy. Added 1 carton of oasis tropical passion friut juice, sliced grapes, cherries and sliced lime. Dissolved 2 Tbsp of sugar in equal parts of water and microwaved 35 secs to dissolve the sugar. Added rum+1 oz of brandy. Used 1L of bottled wine. My go to recipe for sangria

Really good, lovely kick! Added raspberries and strawberries instead of blueberries, perfect for a sunny evening :)

Loved it. So refreshing with a nice kick to it. Easy to make and a really nice addition to our usual fare.

We had the Sangria tonight and it was a total success! All my guests wanted the recipe! I used Merlot, 4 T. Bacardi, 3T. Sugar, ginger ale and the suggested fruit per 3/4 liter of wine and served it in flat champagne bowls. Very tasty, refreshing and good to look at!

You can substitute sugar for truvia or splenda, without the awkward taste. I am not a liqour drinker, so no rum is fine and it tastes great when the fruit is mashed as Chelle C. stated. You don't have to add the fizz if you don't want to. I enjoy the wine texture.

I am a diabetic, so the addition of more sugar and rum wouldn't work for me. I used diet ginger ale instead of the club soda. So I made this for a 4th of July party and I used all the fruits listed with the merlot and diet ginger ale; everyone at my party LOVED it! Muddling (mashing) the citrus added such a richer flavor.
