Simple Red Sangria

This sangria recipe is super simple and super delicious. I'm not a huge fan of sweet drinks, but I love this sangria.

It's the perfect combination of sweet and tart, with deep red wine and vanilla notes. You can choose to add club soda or sparkling water if you prefer a fizzy drink, I personally do not.

I promise that this sangria will please any crowd.


1 bottle of red wine, I used a Cabernet Sauvignon
1/4 cup brandy
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 oranges
2 limes
1 apple
1-3 tablespoons agave, depending on how sweet you like it

In a pitcher combine wine, brandy, vanilla and agave (1 tablespoon at a time until it reaches desired sweetness) and stir until the agave is dissolved.

Cut the orange in half and squeeze all the juice into the pitcher. Do the same with one of the limes.

Cut the remaining orange and lime into thin slices and add to pitcher. Chop up the apple into chunks and add to pitcher as well. Allow mixture to sit in the fridge at least 8 hours and up to 36. Serve chilled, with or without ice, and with or without club soda.
