I enjoy sweet wines. I was wondering if Sangria is a good wine? Does anyone have any recipes?

Sangria is a mixed drink, not a made wine. Here is our recipe:

This recipe come from a thirty one year old source called: Foods of the World from Time Life Books; Wines & Spirits.

For 1 quart:

1/2 C Superfine Sugar
1 C Cold Water
1 Lime, thinly sliced
1 Orange, thinly sliced
12-16 ice cubes
1 bottle Red Wine (preferably Rioja)

Mix all together in a 1 1/2 - 2 quart pitcher.

The wine doesn't have to be Rioja. Any red wine will do. We usually look for the most inexpensive red Spanish wine in the store.

Hi S33, while probably not truly a sangria...whenever my wife opens a bottle of sweet wine that I end up finishing the last 2/3's of, I simply pour it over ice and add 7-up. The sweet stuff alone is hard for me to palate without the fizz. WP
