I drained the pitcher at Thanksgiving when my BIL served this. I don't want to sound like a lush, but I really think I drank 2/3 of it myself... :P Amazing stuff! I'm making it tonight (a double batch!) for a friend's birthday tomorrow. I will be using a frozen fruit mix of cherries, blackberries, blueberries and replacing the simple syrup with pineapple juice. Juices will be frozen, as per suggestions, and added just before serving. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This sangria is awesome... Loved it. I took the advice of other reviewers and omitted the seeds, strawberries, raspberries. I put the orange in right before serving. I froze the pineapple/orange juice in ice trays; used that in lieu of ice. It was great. I also used the cran/pomegranate juice. I will definitely make this sangria again. My nephew and I consumed the entire batch during dinner. PS I only used one $7 bottle of red Spanish wine, & 1/2 cup of blackberry brandy. My total cost was $22. Better than any sangria in the restaurant.... item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a huge hit everyone said it was the best they'd ever had. Very easy to make. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent recipe! I sub'd peaches for apples (because that's what I had on hand) and since I couldn't find pomegranete, I threw in a handful of blackberrries. Turned out great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent! Followed the recipe, took the suggestion of another reviewer and put the pineapple/orange juice in ice cube tray and added before taking it to the party - Perfect! Thanks Bobby item not reviewed by moderator and published
I got a lot of complements on this, including "best sangria I ever tasted." item not reviewed by moderator and published
AMAZING sangria! Rave reviews from everyone. Two men in our party said that they'd only have a little sangria because they really don't like sangria much - they'll switch to wine or beer next. There was no wine or beer drinking by these gentlemen for the rest of the night. Couldn't find pomegranate juice at Trader Joe's, so used Trader Joe's Power Berry 100% fruit blend (mix of pomegranate, apple, acai, cranberry, and elderberry found in cooler juice department). Gives the sangria a little cloudiness as sangria gets with age and fruit muddling - delish! Also used Cointreau instead of Triple Sec. Thank you, Bobby Flay, for sharing your treasure of a recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the BEST Red Sangria recipe!! We use this in our restaurant and get Rave reviews. A couple changes...eliminate oranges (makes it mushy), eliminate pomegranate seeds (not good), add fresh blueberries (delicious and they hold up...strawberries and raspberries do not if you're thinking of adding), use Blackberry brandy (cheaper and produces a Great flavor), use a Red apple (cut into thin slices). Otherwise, AMAZING!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Made it for last years Thanksgiving and the same host requested that I bring it again this year. Tasty, flavorful, and one of the "BEST" sangria's I've ever had. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Fantastic! I made a double recipe for a party and it was gone in 30 minutes. It was fun watching everyone fight over the fruit left in the bottom!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is just outstanding. Neither my husband nor I have ever been big fans of sangria, but I made this for a tapas patio party. The only change I made was to follow the wise advice of delaying the addition of the sliced oranges until the morning of the party, to avoid the bitterness imparted by the peels. It was utterly lovely and delectable. The longer it sat, the smoother it got. So, it is a bit "dangerous," of course, because of the quantity of alcohol hidden within that velvety, fruity taste. This will most certainly be a "go-to" recipe for me. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe. I have made many sangrias and this is one of the best. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Personally it's the best Sangria I've ever had -- from a restaurant, store or anywhere really. Literally bursting with flavor and so smooth you can forget (but will remember rather quickly how much alcohol is actually in it. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is our go-to recipe for Sangria! Really good and has a nice kick as it is, but if you really want it to pack a punch, add a little rum to everyone's glass as you pour the Sangria in! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe. I left out the pomegranate since I did not have any but still delish. Strong ! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tried this recipe and my friends all liked it - they also appreciated the blackberry and pomegranate seeds, so definitely try find them and put them in there to make your sangria special. Enjoy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe. It was a big hit for my Xmas party. The reviews were correct - it is strong and after a few glasses, people were commenting that they were woosey. I followed the suggestion of a previous post, made two batches, and stored each batch in a large two gallon food storage bag. It worked out great. Also, did not put the citrus in until the day of party and then removed citrus from the leftovers - to avoid any sour taste. The remaining fruit was delicious. Would highly recommend. item not reviewed by moderator and published
First time making Sangria. It was a hit with the family. Everyone kept on going back for more. Potent and excellent. Made no changes to the recipe. Can't wait to make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this recipe! First sangria recipe I ever tried and everyone LOVES it/asks for the recipe/ requests it again and again I have never made another! Only change I make is instead of doing Spanish red wine I use Sweet Red Wine (Barefoot and skip the sugar/simple syrup. It's perfect year round! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Definately, let it sit for a day. The difference is amazing. I did not use pomogranate seeds and use 1/2 cup of brandy and 1/2 cup of Chambord. I have been looking for a Sangria for sooooo long and finally found it. Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've been sticking with my own sangria recipe for many years and finally branched out with Bobby Flay's and it was killer. Amazingly tasty and powerful and there's a lot of it. Those with gout: you've been warned. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was easy to follow, simple to make, and tasted DELICOUS. I followed the recipe verbatim, and used Tempranillo wine. I served it at a party and everyone loved it. I will certainly be making this again in the future. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this sangria!! I took this to a party and it was a huge hit. I only made a few modifications. I used lite pomegrante juice and didn't add the pomegrante seeds (the store was out. I used fresh squeezed orange juice and Hennessy Cognac for the brandy. I used tempranillo as another reviewer suggested. This was truely fantastic and I will be making it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Favorite new beverage !!!!! I make it with a red zin I had on hand and only other deviations were no pomegranate juice/seeds and subbed Grand Marnier for triple sec because it's what I had and it is delish! First time I made it was for a dinner party and then a made it few weeks later to keep in my fridge as a summer refreshing alternative to having a glass (or two of red wine in the evening. When I finished that batch I reused the fruit in the pitcher and added liquid ingredients to make another half batch. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Best Sangria EVER! I left out the Pomergranate seeds. Not for the light weights; one glass will give you quite the buzzz. For a lighter version I would add a little less brandy. I brought it to a party and people were asking for more! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Hooked!!! I love the fact there is NO carbonated beverage added. The only downside to this recipe is that you have to let it sit for 24 hours. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wonderful recipe. I, however, did feel that this recipe benefited from the simple syrup. I used 3/4 of the syrup, and I believe this yields perfect results. The other readers that complained of it being too sweet might have used a sweeter wine (tempranillo is perfect!, or perhaps a pomegranate juice blend (pear & apple, etc, as opposed to straight pomegranate juice. This recipe tasted just like the sangria we had all over Barcelona, Spain. Overall, awesome recipe, and would do it again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is a keeper! This was my first attempt at sangria. I made it for a bbq and there was none left over. I did it almost exactly as the recipe states except for a few exceptions. I used inexpensive wine and there was no problem with that I really don't think you need to use an expensive wine. I did use the pomegranate juice but not the actual pomegranate. In addition to the other fruit I happened to have some frozen strawberries so I threw them in as well. I've had bad past experience when leaving sliced citrus (like lime and orange in beverage overnight because it makes everything very bitter and undrinkable so I added the orange slices the day of the party and there was no bitterness. I didn't think it was too strong and the brandy works great. I used a good orange liquer better than triple sec but not as pricey as say grand marnier. Give it a try you won't be disappointed! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I prefer a less sweet Sangria. Instead of the simple syrup, we did this: Ice in the glass. 2/3 of sangria. 1/3 of sparkling water or club soda. OFF THE HOOK DELISH!I've made this for parties, girls weekends, etc. ALWAYS a crowd pleaser. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The best red sangria I've ever had. It was a HUGE success with my guests. I'd be proud to serve it again and again! BTW - it would have been equally great with less or no simple syrup but I was happy with the recipe as is. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I lived in southern Spain for three years, and I have to say this is the most rational type of sangria I have come across. It was exactly like what the Spaniards serve in restaurants. Loved this! This sangria will be my go-to recipe from now on! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awesome Sangria! I've made it twice now and on the first attempt I used reconstituted orange juice and omitted the pomegranate seeds as my grocer was out. It was good, but not near as good as the 2nd batch in which I used fresh squeezed orange juice and included the pomegranate seeds (I also added some fresh lime slices. The recipe also doesn't state if the pomegranate juice is sweetened or unsweetened...I used the unsweetened. Will definitely be making this many more times. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This Sangria is delicious. Always a huge hit at family gatherings! I make a triple batch as it is so popular people want more! item not reviewed by moderator and published
THis is the base recipe but I made changes to it and it was the hit of Thanksgiving dinner. I used BOX red wine that cost about $10 for 5 bottle equivalent. You do NOT need to spend more money on better wine, this works well for sangria. I used peach tree schnapps for the brandy. I used the OJ/Pinneaple mix I don't use simple syrup because I don't like it overly sweet but that is really to taste. I used cranberry/pomegranate juice mix (ocean spray. I also added about a cup of grand manier but that's really expensive so don't buy it if you don't already have an open bottle... I added some lemon lime soda at the last minute based on the younger 20 something crowd at dinner to keep it lighter on alcohol. It's also nice to keep the OJ/pineapple OUT of the mix and freeze them in ice cube tray or small containers. You can put this in the punch bowl to keep it chilled without watering down the sangria with ice. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is a fantastic recipe! I've made it every year for our annual pig roast and people come for the pig and the sangria every year! I agree with the comment about adding blackberries and pomegranate seeds (too expensive--lemon, lime and orange slices work just fine. Very, very yummy, highly recommended!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thank you Bobby! This sangria is absolutely DELICIOUS! I made two batches because of the great reviews. The ingredients cost about $50. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very Good. A bit strong, but for some that is a plus! My friends looked all around my kitchen to find something so they could take some home. Nuff said.... item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a jam packed with flavor sangria. The only warning I would say, is it is much stronger that your more traditional sangria. I was drunk after 2 glasses but it was hard to not drink it! It was so yummy! My guest were even getting tipsy. So if you don't want something as strong, I would make the more traditional one otherwise this is a wonderful recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have been looking for a sangria recipe and this was perfect! I have made it several times and have chosen to not include the pomogranite seeds or the blackberrys. They are pricy items that do not really add to the flavor. Great recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was in Barcelona and had Sangria. I thought I would never find a recipe as good as that. It was delicious I was right, I did not find anything as good as that, I found something that was BETTER. The best Sangria I have ever tasted and all my guests said the same thing! Easy, wonderful, delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! Very easy to make. The best home-made I've had. We had a fajita & margarita fiesta at our home with about 30 guests. The sangria was a hit on its own (I made a triple recipe, but the favorite drink of the night was to fill a glass 1/2 and 1/2 with sangria and frozen margarita. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Every year we do a "girls weekend", and our tradition is to make Sangria. This year we tried this recipe and it was by far the best Sangria any of of have ever had. It is very easy to make too. We had to use Cran-Pomegranate Juice in place of straight Pom juice and skip the pomegranate seeds due to availabiltiy. It says it serves 8, but that is only if no one wants seconds...and the WILL, believe me!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Best sangria recipe I've tasted. WOW. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't use the pomegranate seed, because it was not in season. But it was SO good! Just serving is actually not that much despite the two bottle of wine. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a winner! Easily the most balanced, tastiest sangria I've ever had. Didn't have pomegranate juice or blackberries once so I just left them out; it was still superb. This recipe has made me the Sangria Queen among all our friends -- I'm expected to make it for every get-together now. This is a great use for cheap-ish red wine... item not reviewed by moderator and published
delicious! don't need to wait 24 hrs!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is an amazing recipe. I had doubled the recipe for a recent house warming party and this was the biggest hit of the night. (Even over my top shelf alcohol cabinet.) I personally don't like red wine, but I had a few glasses of this myself. I will definitely be making this again, but next time I'll triple the recipe!! Thanks Bobby! item not reviewed by moderator and published
An excellent summer wine for the hot weather, and I got lots of great comments from my party guests. Not too tart, not too sweet. Fruity but not overpowering. I peeled the oranges so as not to sour the sangria with the oils from the peels. Also made it easier to drink without the hassle of the orange rinds. I transported the sangria to my party in two 1 gallon freezer bags inside a cooler. Easy to transfer the to punch bowl. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this sangria for Christmas eve and it was a huge hit! I hated to throw away all of that yummy fruit so i took out the oranges and pureed the rest of the fruit in a blender. I transferred the puree to a sauce pan and simmered it on low until it reduced...ohh the house smelled wonderful! I ran the sauce through a strainer to get rid of the blackberry seeds and then poured the sauce onto slices of pork tenderloin. Another huge hit! Delicious and it made me feel better about not wasting the fruit! So worth the effort! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Seriously THE best red wine sangria recipe that I have ever tried. My fiance and I made it for our engagement party.

LOVE Bobby Flay. He doesn't disappoint. I had to cut the brandy in half and I added a bit of 7-Up for fizz. Make it 1-2 nights ahead. It was a huge hit the night after for the party and even better the next night. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for my father's birthday mexican fest. I didn't allow the 24 hours (only about 8) so it was not fully integrated. It was still a hit, some guests added some lemonade (?) which was actually pretty tasty. There was some left over and it was sooo good the next day. Thanks, Bobby! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is hands down the best sangria recipe I've tried so far. The only things I do differently is omit the pomegranate seeds and use peach flavored brandy. It is absolutely delish! It's very important to let it sit AT LEAST the 24 hours, although more is better. As a matter of fact, I made it one Saturday and then got sick so I couldn't drink it. I had it about 6 days later and it was fantastic! item not reviewed by moderator and published
If you are skeptical of chilled red wine served over ice, this recipe with convert you! The complexity of flavor in this sangria is AMAZING. The perfect accompaniment to grilled fajitas or other summer grilled meal. THANK YOU BOBBY!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This will be without a doubt be my go-to beverage for the summer from now on! Only problem is, it's very hard for me to wait 24 hours until I tear into it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I served this at our 4th of July party. I followed the recipe with one omission- the pomegranate seeds. I did use the pom juice, brandy, triple sec and fruits in the amounts given in the recipe and thought the flavors were perfect. I used inexpensive Trader Joe's spanish wine my guests thought it was great! I have used a different sangria recipe in the past, but I think this one is better and will make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm always a fan of white sangria but I now I'm converted. I've tried Bobby's recipe, using merlot and omitting the black berries and pomegranate seeds, and I've gotten a crowd pleaser, a fantastic recipe and I'll be using it again and again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this a couple of times now and everyone raves about it! I made a couple of modifications to this recipe. I didn't use pomegranate seeds and I added fresh strawberries and blueberries. I also used blueberry-pomegranate juice and blackberry brandy. For the wine, I just used a jug of Carlo Russo Merlot. Comes out amazing every time! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I looked over a few sangria recipes and they were all pretty similar, with some minor differences. I used this recipe and then modified based on the others I read. I left out the pom juice, blackberries, and pom seeds. Added slices of lemon and lime and strawberries. Used Rioja wine... any brandy and triple sec is fine. The guy at the wine shop was very helpful and knew what I needed. I refrigerated batch overnight. Before serving I added sprite and soda water. I huge hit. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This was a huge hit at our Memorial Day Party. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Let me start off by saying that the recipe, as is, is probably delicious... I made a few changes just to make it easier and a bit cheaper to make (Pomegranate juice can be expensive!!) Started with a good (cheap $6-8) Tempranillo or Rioja Dry Red Wine 1/2 cup simple syrup 1 cup OJ 1 oz VSOP Brandy 1-2 oz Cointreau (or other orange or peach flavored liquor) Fruit sliced and diced: green apple, pear, blackberries (if in season), strawberries, orange slices.. get creative maybe a lemon sliced up Get seltzer water and/or ginger ale just in case your friends want to sweeten or carbonate their sangria.. it goes in right before you serve, anyhow. Do your best to get a 24 hour soak on all this to let the flavors marry.. your patience will be rewarded. Serve over ice, sit back, and wait for the refill requests. Great BBQ cocktail. You can do a similar one with a good Spanish White Wine... item not reviewed by moderator and published
Reluctant to trying a new Sangria recipe, I sucked it up and gave this one a shot. It was a hit. Not only was this Sangria flavorful and smooth (had to make another 2 batches during the party), it presents itself beautifully in a party-sized glass urn. Make sure to let it sit for at least 24 hours. Here are some of my shameful secrets (hopefully I don't embarass myself too much...I just hope this helps if you are in a bind for substitutes)...I used a boxed shiraz and honey instead of simple syrup. The Sangria truly was delicious and I had to send the recipe out after the party to many who attended. I even forgot to add my signature cinnamon...and it was still fantastic. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've used this recipe for catering many times, I change up the fruit when it's necessary not everyone can deal with the pomegrants seeds, and i do add sprite and more brandy. People just don't see see this one coming it's that good. Thanks Bobby item not reviewed by moderator and published
We love this Sangria! I replaced the o.j. and pomegranate juice with peach nectar(2 cups), I sliced an orange & one lemon, let sit for 24 hrs. Then added 3 sliced fresh peaches the next day. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I used oranges, apples, pears and blackberries and omitted the pomegranate seeds. It turned out great!! This was perfect for our Labor Day picnic!! Everyone loved this and I will use it again. This definitely needs the 24 hours to blend and mellow the brandy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was excellent Sangria! It really needs to sit for over 24 hrs to settle all of the flavors. Some guests thought it was strong and added ginger ale, sparkling water or 7-up to give it bubbles & calm the alcohol & pom flavors. Overall, it was excellent and I highly recommend it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Like everyone else - this does deserve its five stars. Knowing my guests would love this sangria, I doubled the recipe and in addition tossed in two bags of frozen mixed fruit. Not only did it help keep the sangria cold but provided an excellent dessert. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We have tried several Sangria recipes in the past and never really found one we loved until now! This is a fantastic recipe with all the wonderful flavors you would find in an authentic restaurant. We used Tempranillo wine as suggested by one of the other reviews. We left out the Pomegranate Seeds and the Brandy. Make sure to seal the container like the recipe says so you can capture the fragrance of the fruit. Our guests loved it and we will keep the recipe and try it again soon. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this sangria for two summer parties recently and have been overwhelmed with people raving about how great it is! In fact, at one party which had young 20 somethings through 60 somethings, everyone was fighting to get the last glass. I intend to make it again for my book club. I don't think it can fail to please! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I became a fan of sangria when I went to Spain last fall! I have been getting a litlte tired of red wine, even though we have an amazing cellar. Sometimes you want something different. This sangria is so GREAT! I added a touch more simple syrup and fruit juices and used blueberry/ pom juice because some of my crowd like their drinks a touch sweeter. And I must say, it's pretty perfect! I made 2 pitchers one saturday, then the following saturday, two more pitchers for another gathering. I will be making this all summer. Even my chardonnay-drinking mother-in-law had two glasses! One word of advise, make it a day ahead so the brandy has time to chill out a little. it's much smoother that way! item not reviewed by moderator and published

After trying 3 other recipes, I found this one. The judging was from 8 in our cul de sac. We loved the look of the fruit and sangria in a large container, the wine itself was not overpowered by the brandy and the fruit ending (dessert) was lovely. No - one complained during our gathering of 85 adults. In fact, the recipe was requested!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this (with only 1/2 cup brandy) for a summer BBQ and it was extremely popular! Everyone loved it and it's SO easy to make. Make sure you make it the night before, it has a much different flavor the next day! item not reviewed by moderator and published
If you would like to completely disguise the alcohol in sangria with fruit, this is not your recipe because the alcohol brings out the flavors of the fruit. I had a sangria party and made this sangria; the result was a full-bodied and refreshing beverage. Those whole liked it commented that the 1 cup of Brandy gave this a nice kick. Those who weren't crazy about it said the Brandy masked the fruit flavors. So when it comes to the Brandy, remember to tailor it to your liking. item not reviewed by moderator and published
