The thing that I like about Sangria is you really can’t get it wrong. You can really make it your own and you can use even the crappiest of wines and it can still come out great. My Aunt and Uncle gave me a few bottles of wine at Christmas that they had lying around for awhile and wanted to get out of their house. I figured I would use them eventually and 7 months later I finally cracked one open. These were larger than a standard bottle of wine so I had to adjust accordingly. Also don’t worry if you are not a fan of red wine, switch it out for white wine.
You really can use any fruit you want. Mix and match whatever flavors you like, I have used peaches, strawberries, grapes, pineapple, apples, oranges, lemons, and limes. Got a cheap bottle of wine? No problem just bump up the amount of sugar till it tastes to your liking. I tried the lemonade since I had some left in my fridge and I wanted to get rid of it to make space. I have to say I am so glad I did, it was so good!!
Have you tried Sangria?
What is your favorite fruits to add in?
Probably not the best for me to see this at 7AM!! But yum, this looks so good and refreshing!
Haha!! Yes, I wouldn’t recommend having one at 7am but later for sure! 🙂

Delicious ! Thanks for sharing.

Thank you! It is a favorite for me too. Perfect for lazy summer days!
Oh gosh yum!!! Definitely pinning this!
Thank you! Hope you give it a try!
That looks delicious! I’ve never made sangria before but this looks so easy, I might have to give it a shot.
Oh it is so easy. Just dump it all in a pitcher and then few hours later it is perfect!
OMG YES. this is perfect! i love sangria, its almost the only way i can even drink wine anymore.
It makes even the worst wine taste good!! 🙂
I’ve never tried sangria. I’m scared I won’t like the wine I guess. Lol. The closest I’ve come is the sangarita at work. It’s a sangria and margarita together. It’s interesting!
Just add more sugar!! The quality of wine determines how much sugar to use. Trust me I have used $5 wine and it still came out good.
making peach sangria tonight
Ohhh that sounds really good too! Red or white wine?
Ooh this sounds soo yummy! I love sangria especially on a hot day!
It is the perfect summer cocktail!

Mango, that’s a great spin on it!
I really liked the Mango, I’ve also had Melon which was good too!
Yum! I have been waiting for this recipe. Can’t wait to try it out this weekend!
Hope you like it! It is so easy to make!
Melanie at Ribbons and Rotor Blades says
Making this this weekend!!! Thanks!!!
Hope you like it! My favorite version was with the lemonade.
This is similar to how we make it except we always add brandy . The drunken apples are my favorite part!
I see a lot of them with Brandy, but that is not something I ever have on hand so I tend to add whatever leftover booze I have! 😉 Yes, the drunken apples are the best!!
Sounds delicious! I’m going to keep this recipe in mind for entertaining friends because sangria always looks fancy! lol
It feels fancy but it is really easy and perfect to throw together the night before a party!
I’m allergic to mango… it gives me hives! haha
Shut the front door, really?! Well then you must try the Melon rum then!
YOU MAKE THE MOST DELICIOUS DRINKS!!!!!
Thank you so much! I really just throw everything in, stir and hope for the best! 😉
Kate @ Green Fashionista says
YUMMMMMM! Love me some sangria and anything mango flavored 🙂
mango flavor was a nice tough. I might even add some mango fruit next time too.
I love sangria but for some reason have never tried making it myself! Eating the fruit out of it is always the best part!
Haha! Yes, the fruit is the best part. It is not that hard to make, so worth a try!
Yum! Sounds great!
Thank you. It was sweet but not to sweet.
Jana @ Jana Says says
We’re having friends over this weekend and I said I wanted to make sangria. I think I’ll be using this version!
Yeah!! I hope you like it!!
I love love love sangria. And I’ve been on the lookout for a good recipe- so I will definitely need to try this out!
Hope you like it! Being able to throw it all together and just grab a glass or two when you want is always nice.
Heather @ My Little HEA says
I’ve never thought to put flavored rum in it, but that sounds so good! I’m a huge Sangria girl…it’s how I was finally able to drink wine, lol.
Haha! Most add brandy but I never have that at home. I used to add Sprite to wine that tasted funky so this is a step up! 😉
As much as I love myself a cheap bottle of wine, I’ve never tried to make sangria with one. I think I’m going to have to remedy that soon!
Yes, you should!! It really kicks up the flavor of a cheap bottle of wine. The added rum makes it a party!
I love mango! This sounds amazing!
Thank you. Mango was such a good hint of flavor.
Lisa Loves John says
Girlfriend, this looks sooo yummy!! I’m going to need to be making this!
Thank you. It was very refreshing and easy to throw together. Hope you like it!
Leeann @ Join the Gossip says
I LOVE sangria! I haven’t made any in years though. I should try this one!
Yes, you totally should it was really yummy!
Please come be my neighbor.
Haha! My family might miss me! 😉
yum – i love sangria! it’s the perfect summertime drink. using mango rum sounds like such a great combo.
It is so fruity and perfect. Thank you.
Okay, I have still not tried Sangria, and I feel like I really need to! This looks really good!
Yes, you need to get on it and give it a try!
Ummmm yes please!! Okay, my apartment is still a wreck, but I promise, we’ll do a tequila party soon… And then we need to do a sangria party!
Yes, we need to plan another party soon. Glad you are settling in ok though.
