How to Make Cheap and Delicious Sangria

by Katina N

I was craving sangria and wanted to experiment. This mixture turned out well.


  • 1 Bottle Sparkling rośe wine
  • 1 Bottle red wine
  • 3 Ounces Triple sec
  • 6 Ounces Lemon lime soda
  • 1 Bunch Fruit, cut
  • Simple syrup (optional)
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Gather your ingredients. If you want sweeter sangria, what you really want is a sparkling rośe and another red. Pinot Nior, Merlot, or Zinfandel work well. The total for the drinks picture is $10.

    Step 2

    I used this type of wine for the first one. The cranberry is a great addition and I may start putting a bit of cranberry juice in my sangria moving forward.

    Step 3

    The fruit pictured is precut because this was a refill of the sangria. I used one apple, 1 mango, 8 strawberries, 1 plum and 1 nectarine. You can also use peaches or berries

    Step 4

    Put the sparkling wine in first because it will bubble.

    Step 5

    Add the other wine to the mix.

    Step 6

    Add 3 oz of triple sec to the mixture.

    Step 7

    Top off with 6 oz of lemon lime soda. If the mix isn't sweet enough, add simple syrup to taste.

    Step 8

    Chill for 24 hours for best results for the fruit to flavor the wine, but it tastes good immediately too. Serve and enjoy!
