Smitty’s Sangria

October 15, 2010

I spent some time living in Spain and tried a bunch of sangrias. Once I returned stateside I missed the sangria on hot afternoons. After trying dozens of recipes I took elements of each and ended up with my own recipe that my friends and family seem to really like. Enjoy!


  • Approximately 1/2 gallon of red wine (Carlos Rossi Sangria base or another Spanish red)
  • 1  to 1 1/2 cup apricot brandy
  • 1/2 to 1 cup triple sec
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup apricot nectar
  • 1/2 to 1 cup sprite
  • half an apple
  • half an orange
  • cinnamon


  1. Combine the liquid ingredients in a large pitcher.
  2. Chop the fruit into bite size pieces and add to pitcher.
  3. Sprinkle cinnamon over the top.
  4. Chill.
  5. Drink. Mmmmmm.
