Quick Sangria

Sangria is very delicious and refreshing and much easier to make than you think! You can spice up any occassion with a quick but delicious Sangria but why wait for a party, when you can spice up any day of the week with my delicious Quick Sangria.

I don't really follow a recipe when making my Sangria, but I will try my best to explain how I make it.  If you feel like you need more or less of something, please feel free to add or take away. The beauty of Sangria is that you can be as creative as you like!


Half a bottle (375ml) of dry Red Wine
Two apples cut into small cubes
One pineapple cut into small cubes
Two cinnamon sticks
Five star anise
250ml Mixed Berry Juice
250ml Sprite

Cut all the fruit into small cubes (think bite size and they must look good in a glass)
Pour red wine over fruit and if you have time let it sit. Half an hour should do! If you have no time, no worries, just go to next step. You can use any red wine you like.
Pour in the Mixed Berry Juice - you can even use orange juice, but I found it "clouded" the red and I liked the pretty red look!
Add cinnamon sticks and star anise
Add Sprite * If you like less sweet add Sparkling Water or Soda Water instead
Mix well and chill for about 2 hours.

Serve and enjoy. Makes about 4-5 glasses (you might want to double up)
