Editor's Note: The above Sangria recipes are traditional--all three are made with dry, red wine. If anyone has a suggestion for a Sangria recipe made with a dry, white wine, I would appreciate your sending it along. Just click on the @ symbol below.
Several years after posting above request in 2005, in July 2008, received the following note from a reader:Hi Sue,When I first went to Spain in 1957 we were served Sangria made with a combination of both white wine and red wine. Any kind of wine for both white and red are good. I think the combination not only makes a tastier drink but is also much prettier than just plain red or white Sangria.We had it with all kinds of fruit so whatever you have on hand is fine. They mashed up some of the fruit and left the remainder whole. Rather than mashing some of the fruit, you could just add orange and lemon or lime juice in small portions. Taste and if not sweet enough add to the pitcher about 1/4 c. fine grain sugar (or to taste depending on the dryness of the wines you use) and chill. When ready to serve add one bottle of chilled soda (I find ginger ale too sweet to use) and stir.There are so many recipes for Sangria and all depend on your preference. Experiment until you find the right combination for your taste.Good luck. Faye
Also, since posting the request in 2005, I have added a recipe for a white sangria. Click here on White Sangria for that.
