“Always made White Sangria and wanted to try a red version to go with our favorite Cuban inspired dinner. Decided a get together with my brother and cousins would be the perfect time to taste test. Everyone agreed it was a keeper! Cheers Lana, Ron and Rick!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (750 ml) bottlewhite merlot
  • 14-12 cup brandy, I used Hennessy Brand
  • 1 lime, sliced thin
  • 5 -6 strawberries, quartered
  • 1 lemon, juice of
  • 1 cup grapes, I used organic black and cut some in half
  • chilled lemon lime seltzer water
  • seltzer ice cube (with raspberries or blackberry)
  • 14 cup sugar (optional)


  1. Use a clear glass pitcher for pretty presentation. Make the ice cubes up ahead and freeze in containers to have on hand for summer drinks. Pour the wine in the pitcher, add Brandy, cut up fruit. If your going to add sugar do it before you add the fruit and stir till dissolved. Cover and refrigerate for 12-24 hours before plan to serve. To serve place some of the fruit in glasses along with prepared ice cubes. Pour in Sangria. I place small bottles chilled Seltzer on the table so each person can adjust the strength to their preference. Keeps up to 2-3 days refrigerated and the fruit is delicious to eat.
