Summertime sangria

    6 hours 10 min

    A refreshing drink that is typically drunk at bull fights in some parts of Spain. It's perfect for summer parties. You don't have to use the same fruit each time. Oranges and strawberries work well too.

    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  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    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  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
