Best-Ever Red Sangria

Sangria comes to us by way of Spain and Portugal and has a long and rich history that dates back to the Middle Ages and was originally aged wine mixed with fruit and spices, such as cinnamon. Our version of sangria is light and bubbly with the addition of seltzer water and the perfect ratio of wine to brandy. Not a red fan? Try our white wine sangria! We also have fun winter time sangrias like Apple Cider Sangria, Cranberry Blissmas Sangria, and Jingle Juice! Or for the warmer months try our frozen sangria or sangria lemonade!

What is the best wine for sangria?

You don't necessarily want to use your best wine for sangria since your mixing other ingredients into it. A few of our favorites are Pinot Noir, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

What are the best fruits for sangria?

You want to use sturdy, flavorful fruits that can sit in the pitcher for a long time without disintegrating. Play off the wine you are using. If the wine has notes of pears or raspberries, use those! Our favorite fruits are below. Go for seasonal fruits as well. Citrus, pears, cranberries, and pomegranates all make great sangria additions in the winter months!

- Oranges

What other sweeteners can I use?

Our sangria recipes uses sugar and orange juice as the sweetener. Honey or agave also work well!

How can I make this ahead of time?

Stir together all ingredients except for the seltzer in a pitcher and refrigerate until ready to serve. The longer it has to sit in the refrigerator the better it gets. Add the seltzer right before you start pouring glasses.

About [ yellow tail ] Sangria

[ yellow tail ] Sangria is a delicious mix of citrus and red wine. The aroma is enticing and perfumed with orange rind, citrus and red berry notes that splashes onto the palate with a soft, sweet citrus flavor and hints of spirit. [ yellow tail ] Sangria pairs well with:

  • BBQ meats/beef (i.e. burgers, roast beef, beef stew, peppercorn steak)
  • poultry (i.e. chicken skewers, chicken teriyaki, chicken parmesan, roast duck)
  • seafood (i.e. grilled shrimp, fried calamari, baked oysters) and
  • strong cheese (i.e. blue cheese, sharp cheddar, gruyere)

Because of the delicious mix of citrus, we thought it would be great to accent that with a bit more in our Sangria Spritzer cocktail!

Fruity Sangria Blanca Recipe

Sangria with fruit is a perfect summertime drink. What makes it great is that you can customize it to hold your favorite fruits, and get some lovely nutrition as well! Where many sangrias are made with red wine, this sangria recipe is made with white wine to emphasize the fruity flavors.


1 750ml bottle Spanish (or other favorite) white wine
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup peach-flavored brandy
6 Tbsp thawed lemonade concentrate
8 oz sliced peaches
1 cup sliced green grapes
1 cup sliced red grapes

Prepare a large bowl or pitcher. Mix together the white wine, sugar, brandy and lemonade until well blended. Add in the peaches, green grapes and red grapes. Refrigerate overnight.

Serve the next day from a large pitcher filled with ice.

To turn this into a single-glass sangria recipe, a typical assumption is that one 750ml bottle of wine yields four large glasses of wine. Divide all ingredients shown by four. If you're making just one glass worth you probably don't want to wait for the overnight soaking. If the mixture doesn't soak, you just won't get as much of the fruit / berry flavors permeating the sangria.

So You Want To Learn How To Make Sangria?

Before I show you how to make sangria, let’s talk about what it is.

Sangria originated in Spain and Portugual and is basically a Spanish wine punch, flavored with lots of fresh fruit.

The word sangria is such a nice sounding word isn’t it? Can you believe it means “bloody” in Spanish? I couldn’t believe it either. Maybe it’s referring to the nice red color when it’s made with red wine.

Sangria can also be made with white wine and is called Sangria blanco.

This wonderfully refreshing wine punch is the perfect drink for celebrating Cinco de Mayo, a block party, a bachelorette party or any fiesta.

After you try it you will be making batches of your own and having it all the time. Your friends will soon be asking you how to make sangria.

It’s incredibly easy to make and everyone seems to like it’s fresh fruity flavor. I’m not a wine drinker but after tasting this, I can say that even I like the flavor. It must be the fruity taste and it goes down very easy.

Sometimes a little too easy so watch out!

Sangria in it’s traditional form, is made with red wine in addition to some or all of the following ingredients:

  • fresh citrus juice, like orange, lemon, pineapple and lime
  • a liqueur such as triple sec, peach shnapps or other fruity liqueur
  • carbonated soda (either ginger ale, 7up, carbonated water or any other carbonated drink)
  • sliced or whole fresh fruits, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, oranges, lemons, limes, pineapple, even kiwi and peaches.
  • additional liquor such as brandy, rum, or vodka

The beauty of this drink is that there is no exact recipe.

Yes I’m going to give you a good one but don’t be afraid to change it up if you like.

This is a very good, how-to-make sangria recipe.

Let’s get to the recipe and then I will give you some tips on how you can “make it your own”.

How To Make Sangria

Sangria Ingredients:

  • 2 bottles of red wine, I used Trader Joe’s “Alexander & Fitch Cabernet Sauvignon
  • 2 oranges, juiced
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 oranges, sliced and seeded
  • 2 lemons, sliced and seeded
  • 1 lime, sliced and seeded
  • 1 cup triple sec
  • 1/2 cup sugar and an equal amount of water, heated till dissolved, cooled, you’ll have left overs which is ok.
  • 2 liter bottle of ginger ale, I used 3/4 of the bottle
  • 3/4 cup of pink lemonade frozen concentrate, thawed
  • 1 cup strawberries, added just before serving
  • 1 cup blackberries


Grab a large glass picture, I used a gallon size jar with a lid.

Add the wine, the juiced oranges, lemons and lime (without seeds), the triple sec, the lemonade concentrate, the sliced oranges, lemons and limes, the 3 tablespoons of the dissolved sugar and stir well. Save all soft fruits and ginger ale to add the next day before serving.

Put the lid on and refrigerate at least 8 hours but preferably 24 hours.

When you are ready to serve, pour the wine into a container large enough to hold all the wine and the fruit. You will be adding the ginger ale at this point. Stir to combine.

You may or may not need to add more sugar. That’s up to you and how sweet you like it.

All together I used about 1/4 cup of the simple syrup. Taste the sangria and add more sugar if you wish.

I used one of those big water dispensers/servers with a spigot to serve the sangria in. You can pick these up at Costco. They work great for sangria.

Don’t add ice to the sangria but rather add it to the glass. You don’t want to water it down.

Tips On How To Make Sangria

Your first question is probably “What kind of sangria wine should I use?” Don’t use a real expensive wine. You will be wasting your money as you won’t be able to appreciate it’s full flavor.

Spend around $10.00 for a decent bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Rioja, Pinot Noir or a Spanish wine and you can’t go wrong.

As I mentioned above, I went to Trader Joe’s and picked up the Alexander & Fitch Cabernet and it was great. It only cost $6.99 a bottle.

Sangria must be served chilled.

If you are adding strawberries, add them just before serving. They can get pretty mushed up if you add them the night before and they won’t look very appetizing.

A nice touch is to skewer some fruit and place them in the glasses before serving. It looks great and your guests will enjoy nibbling on the fruit.

Try and use whatever fruit is in season. Fresh sweet strawberries, peaches and blackberries from the farmers market are incredible.

Place the skewered fruit on a platter or cup and let guests grab their own to add to their drink.

Have ice cubes available for guests to add to their wine if they want.

Adding sugar to the wine doesn’t dissolve very easily so I dissolved the sugar in water and heated it until the sugar dissolved and then let it cool. This is called simple syrup.

How To Make Sangria “Your Own”

Making a sangria wine punch is not an exact science but rather a work of art that you can change and create based on what you have on hand and what you like.

Here is a list of ingredients you can add to make your own sangria. I listed amounts so you have a general idea how much to add based on one bottle of red wine.

  • 1/2 cup of brandy, rum, or vodka
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup of liqueur of your choice, grand marnier , triple sec, or peach schnapps are good examples.
  • 2 to 6 cups of ginger ale, carbonated lemonade (Trader Joe’s), club soda, or 7 up
  • 1 to 2 cups of fruit juice such as orange, lemon, lime, pineapple, pomegranate, cherry, cranberry or apple, preferably fresh.
  • as much sliced fruit as you want. The more the better in my opinion

Experiment with different amounts of ingredients and you will develop your very own special how-to-make sangria recipe.

Learning how to make Sangria is fun and you will find most everyone will love it. It goes without saying how wonderful it is with our Mexican recipes. Here are a couple more sangria recipes for you to try.

He fixated a baffle look at the tanned blonde lady. “Oh no, not another American, said under his breath.

“You speak English?”, the lady answered surprisingly.

The lessons on Cultural Begins

“Would you like some Sangria?”, asked the bartender.

“You want me to drink blood. ”, the lady taunted.

“Sangria, Sangria, not blood. Sangria derived from the word Sangre. Yes, lady, it meant blood.”, the bartender explained.

“Earlier, you asked me where the party is. You are an early bird.” As the bartender continues to explain, “People here start party around 2 a.m. Safe to said, the place here will get packed after 2:15 a.m.”

“Wow! This is unlike us. We start around 8 p.m. and end at maybe midnight.”

“The Spaniards know how to have fun.” the bartender laughs.

“This Sangria is good!”. How do you make it?”

“It is a secret.”, bartender answered.

As the American and the bartender continues their lessons on the Spanish living.

The Sangria has been popular drink in Europe for hundred years. The basic recipe consists of Spanish wine, Rioja, and fruits. In some Europe countries used claret or Bordeaux. It occurs during maybe 1800s. The Sangria make its first appearance in America in 1964 at the World’s Fair in New York. The Sangria began to spread in America.

Today to this day, there are many different recipes. Fruits mainly are oranges, apples, and lemons. It does not necessary restricts to the ingredient or red wine and fruits. Some people add rum, brandy, or even vodka to the Sangria.

When you see the Sangria with the words following, Sangria Blanco, it means that Sangria is making from white wine. As you know your basic Spanish, blanco means white. Sangria Blanco maybe will align with fruits that such as kiwis, peaches, or mangos.

Really, there is no rule on how to make Sangria. The rough guideline of Sangria making is wine and fruits mixture. To refine your recipe, you may use another alcohol, fruit juice, soda water, sparking water, and/or even use sugar.

The restaurants have their own recipe. The Sangria you drank is the bar’s best kept secret recipe, the most traditional and authentic drink.

You get alcohol, fruits and combine it together. You let it melds just like you marinates your food. That is the Sangria you drink.

The bartender observes the room.

The lady translates few words deliberately and reply, “Drink me no”, as she shook her finger.

“I bet you it is around 2 a.m.” the bartender reckons.

She checked her watch and it read out 2:11 a.m. Suddenly, she felt her wrist being grabbed. “Senor! Give me my watch back now!”

“We must stop and smell the roses, lady. Not only occasionally but, we must do it often.” As the bartender debates, “Time is an important tool but not making a life chained to the time. Learn to control your destiny as you are master of your time, not a servant.”

“Look!” as the bartender scans the room with his finger. The lady’s eye feasts the room. The patrons banter, barmaid walk by with tray full of drinks, the couple flirts madly in the corner, and across the room another group of patron sings gleefully.

“What time do you think this party will end?”, the bartender challenged.

“Find out.”, the Bartender answered with a smirk, “It is only the way you can experience authentic Spanish living.”

“Take two aspirins and see me to claim your watch in morning.”, joked the bartender.
