Sangria | Peri's Place For Recipes

It depends....


  • 1 bottle red wine (2 buck chuck cabernet works just fine)
  • 1 cup cognac
  • 1 cup gin
  • 1 cup super fine sugar (regular works if you don't have it)
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 orange


  1. Combine the wine, gin, cognac and 1 cup sugar in pitcher and stir until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Cut the peel, including the white pith, off of the lemon and orange and cut out the individual sections of fruit. Dice into small pieces.
  3. Stir the diced fruit, fruit juices, and cinnamon sticks into the wine mixture. Taste. You may need to add more sugar at this point, or you may want to chill it first before you adjust sweetness.
  4. You can serve the sangria right away, but will benefit from a cooling down period in the fridge. Serve in wine glasses over ice.
