If you have some cold sparkling water in the fridge, you can assemble a pitcher of this refreshing sangria in a matter of minutes. When serving a crowd, double or triple the recipe and let guests serve themselves from a large punch bowl.


  • 1 bottle (750ml) dry, fruity red wine
  • 1/2 cup (4 fl. oz./125 ml) brandy
  • 2 Tbs. sugar
  • 2 lemons, thinly sliced
  • 2 limes, thinly sliced
  • 1 orange, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups (16 fl. oz./500 ml) sparkling water, chilled
  • Ice cubes as needed
  • Pomegranate seeds for garnish (optional)


In a large pitcher, combine the wine, brandy, sugar, lemons, limes and orange and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add the sparkling water and stir gently to combine. Fill 6 glasses with ice and pour the sangria into the glasses. Garnish with pomegranate seeds and serve immediately. Serves 6.
