Sangria is a refreshing and flavorful drink that’s perfect for warm weather or festive occasions. Here’s a simple recipe to help you make delicious sangrias:


– 1 bottle of red or white wine (750ml)

– 1 cup of chopped fruits (such as oranges, lemons, limes, berries, or apples)

– 1/4 cup of sugar (adjust for sweetness preference)

– 1/4 cup of your choice of liquor (such as brandy, rum, or orange liqueur)

– 1 cup of carbonated water or soda (optional, for added fizz)

– Ice cubes


  1. Select your preferred wine: Red wines like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, or Rioja work well for red sangria, while white wines like Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, or Pinot Grigio are great for white sangria.
  2. Prep the fruits: Wash and chop your choice of fruits into bite-sized pieces. Citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, and limes are commonly used, but you can also add berries, apples, or any other favorite fruits.
  3. Combine ingredients: In a large pitcher, add the chopped fruits, sugar, and your choice of liquor. Stir well to dissolve the sugar and let it sit for about 10-15 minutes to release the fruit flavors.
  4. Add wine: Pour the entire bottle of wine into the pitcher with the fruit mixture. Stir gently to combine.
  5. Chill and steep: Cover the pitcher and refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours, or ideally overnight. This allows the flavors to meld and the fruit to infuse the wine.
  6. Serve: When ready to serve, give the sangria a good stir. Fill glasses with ice cubes and pour the sangria over the ice. If desired, top off each glass with a splash of carbonated water or soda for a bit of fizz.
  7. Garnish: For a finishing touch, garnish glasses with a slice of fruit or a sprig of mint.

Note: Feel free to adjust the sweetness and alcohol content to your preference by adding more or less sugar and liquor. You can also customize the fruits and experiment with different combinations to create your own unique sangria recipe.

Remember to drink responsibly and enjoy your homemade sangria responsibly and in moderation.
