Cool Sangria for a Hot Summer Day


I haven’t posted recipes here on my blog before, but I’ve gotten a few requests for this one. I make this for just about every party we have and it’s ALWAYS a hit! And it’s got a kick to it, so the host may not want to do too much “sampling” before the festivities get underway (trust me on this!).

  • Mix 2 750 ml bottles of Chablis (that’s 2 regular bottles, or 1 big “jug”…..I buy cheap wine for this, since we’re doctoring it up anyway) with
  • 1 1/2C ¬†sugar¬†
  • 1 C brandy
  • Slice thinly: 2 lemons, 2 limes, 2 apples, 1 orange

(I usually mix mine in a big stock pot and store in our second refrigerator.)

Let this marinate for several hours or overnight.

  • Dilute with club soda, if desired
  • Very nice served in a punch bowl with an ice ring containing some of the fruit slices OR
  • Serve from a pitcher
