If you order sangría below the border, you may be surprised to find it's not laden with chunks of fruit and lacks the extra liqueur kick usually expected from Spanish sangría. Mexican Sangría is light and refreshing, like a grown-up wine cooler.


  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups fresh lime juice
  • 12 cups water
  • 1 (1-liter) bottle sparkling water
  • 1 (750-milliliter) bottle dry red wine
  • Garnishes: lime and kumquat slices


  1. Stir together sugar and fresh lime juice in a large punch bowl until sugar is dissolved. Stir in water, sparkling water, and wine. Serve over ice.


We tested with Ménage à Trois California Red Wine.
