Sangria recipe

Sangria is a delicious mixed drink for those who prefer their alcohol with a touch of sweetness. A Spanish classic.


Serves: Makes 1 litre
Cooking Time: 10 mins


  • 750ml (3 cups) full-bodied red Spanish wine
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) orange juice
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) orange liqueur
  • 20ml (4 tsp) sugar
  • orange and lemon slices
  • 250ml (1 cup) grapes, halved
  • 250ml (1 cup) sparkling water
  • ice, for serving



Combine all the ingredients, except the water and ice, in a large jug. Cover and place in the fridge for several hours before serving. Add the sparkling water and ice just before serving.


Cook's tip: Use Spanish wine for an authentic taste (find it at leading wine stores nationwide), otherwise any full-bodied red wine will do.
