This is a great way to use up value wine when it seems to not be up to snuff. Use any assortment of fruit as long as there are fresh orange and lemons.
- 1 bottle tolerable red wine
- 1 cup triple sec
- 1/3 cup spiced rum
- juice of a few oranges
- juice of a lemon
- cut up fruit
- cranberry juice
Soak fruit in triple sec and rum for a few hours. Add wine, orange and lemon juice and mix well in large pitcher. Add cranberry juice to taste and let sit in refrigerator for two hours. Enjoy over ice while eating the fruit.
Yum. What a great drink on an unseasonably warm day (as we’re having so many of this year).
I’ve got some lime wedges to pop in that if you would like?
Love “tolerable” wine! Just had a couple of glasses of Sangria at the Cuban restaurant.
With your recipe, I can make it at home.
Sangria is a great way to use up “tolerable” wine. 😀
I would make this, tolerable or not:)
Do you know how much my mother loves Sangria? Oh Greg.. she is going to thank you so much for this recipe
Give me a bendy straw and I’m good to go!
The cranberry juice is a nice touch and might even elevate an “intolerable” red.
Good summer drinking – nice one.
With our weather we will soon be skipping the sangria and moving onto gluhwein.
Seems so beautiful… But also should be so delicious… wine and all these fruits… WOW! Thank you dear Rufus, with my love, nia
That’s great – have you tried it with cava?
I have to wait a whole few hours to drink? My patience is not that good..
I have some of that tolerable wine lying around – a prize I won 🙂
Now THAT’S a mixed drink I can get behind!
Oh, wait – maybe it was the TABLE I got behind last time….
The memory is a bit fuzzy…
This should give you a good cheerful Easter Holidays! I love sangria.
This is just the absolute perfect drink for a long holiday weekend….like this one!
Excellent … especially going into the warmer season. Many thanks … Cheers!
I think everyone needs a pitcher. Love it.
Oohh, I love Sangria! It must be much warmer in your neck of the woods than it is here. I’m looking out the window at snow. Not quite ready for Sangria, but totally ready for a Hot Toddy! 🙂
This one is certainly perfect timing, Greg — yet again. This will be a lovely beverage to start the festivities! Have a great one.
Yes, indeed, it is definitely Sangria season again 🙂
I like how you mention “tolerable red wine” haha! I could use some sangria right now!
I really think these drink recipes must be the hardest part of this whole blog thing. I mean it must just suck to have to make something like this once a week – just to try it out for all of us. You guys are so selfless.
I have a recipe that is similar but I like the addition of the cranberry juice. I use Grand Marnier instead of Triple Sec.
Yum! I am definitely going to try this one! Thanks!
I’m one of the few people who doesn’t drink Sangria because I get a headache every time I have had it. I know my guests will love your Sangria though when we are doing outside entertaining.
Sangria gets me so excited for summer. I could drink way too much of this stuff–SO good! I agree with Karen, it’s such a great drink for entertaining.
I have a few bottles of tolerable read around here.. oh thats right in my new cave!! in the basement.. it is so cold in there.. fantastic, the cheese and wine are loving it! sangria sounds like summer to me! Rock on summer! c
RED!! cecilia you must proof you work BEFORE posting not AS you hit the button! sorry.. c
Hahaha. “tolerable” wine indeed. This is definitely welcomed for the upcoming long weekend 🙂
Good idea! We’ve run into a bottle or two like that. 🙂
One of my favorite drinks!
Sadly I never have leftover wine….
Interesting idea to use spiced rum. I think that would make it a good “fall” Sangria.
Triplesec is an absolute must.
I still prefer to use brandy (not particularly good brandy, but brandy) as the other spirit.
Leftover fruit is also delicious over vanilla ice cream.
Haha – great idea! Thought you were going green this month? I like red too!
Sangria is one of my favorite drinks. I will have to try it with rum. I like rum, too.
Great for a warm summers day…or any day!
