Sangria is one of those beverages that you can throw any fruit or liquid in and it will taste great. Adding pop like gingerale or 7-up gives this drinks a bubbly or effervescence feeling. Add any kind of wine you like, I usually use a Cabernet or Pinot Noir.


1 bottle (750 mL) of red wine

1 cup of raspberry or strawberry vodka

1/2 cup of grenadine

1 large can of pineapple juice, 1.36 L

slices of fruit: oranges, lemon & limes

gingerale, to serve


Step 1: In a large pitcher, add the wine, vodka, grenadine syrup, pineapple juice and fruit. Mix together and let sit for a minimum of 4 hours (best if made the night before drinking)

Step 2: To serve, add a few ice cubes to a glass, pour in some sangria and top off with some gingerale.
