    First sangria recipe I've used. This is awesome!

    Fabulous! I use less vodka than what the recipe states. Always a hit!!

    This is delightful and very refreshing for a summer entertaining menu. I used pomegranate-flavored vodka, as it was all I had, and it was wonderful!

    I made this a few weeks ago and loved it!! making again for a get together with friends! It was easy tasty and something different than the usual Margaritas and wine coolers for the ladies!!

    I fixed this for a party of approximately 15 adults. I doubled the recipe, assuming that I would have a lot left over. We ran out within the first hour. People loved it! I wouldn't change a thing other than to make twice as much as I think I will need the next time.

    I made this as written for a mini wedding reception, and it was fabulous! I made a double batch, and it's a good thing, because the first batch was gone in 30 minutes! Highly recommend!

    Made this for a girls night party at my house last night for 12 friends. Good thing I made two pitchers full! It's not like the typical heavy, spiced sangria. Very light. Really delicious! Can't wait to make it again this weekend!

    I couldn't find a rose (imagine), so did use white zin. It was good, but I wouldn't say it was great. Also could not find peach nectar so used the peach-flavored vodka. Had about 15 guests, made a double batch as everyone else recommended, and they drained it before the party ended, so they must have liked it more than I did. Several who do not usually have a drink tried it, and liked it, too. Served this on a hot summer day, which may have helped.

    This is the greatest! I'm making it for every summer gathering from now on. I made a double recipe for dinner for 16 adults and it was gone in about 30 minutes. Notes: 1) a double recipe fits perfectly in a gallon pitcher; 2) I had neither vodka nor peach nectar, but I did have peach schnapps which I substituted to great effect; 3) I'm not sure what the fresh fruit adds to the recipe beside cost, so I'm likely to skip it in the future. All that cutting is time-consuming! It's possible that bagged-frozen-fruit-as-ice-cubes might work nicely. 4) I used Yellow Tail rose. Make this - your guests will love it!

    I should have doubled the recipe like everyone else said, because my girlfriends were upset that they only got one glass. not too sweet, which we liked. will definitely make again.

    This is the only Sangria recipe I've made, but it has been a hit both times I have served it at cookouts.

    This is one of my favorites; people always love it. I used a Nobilo sauv blanc the first time I made it (I already had it on hand)...it's citrusy and just a little bit peppery on its own, but with the other ingredients it just takes the peaches to a new level. I omitted the extra sugar and reduced the amount of lemonade concentrate to 3 or 4 Tbsp, to suit my taste for sweetness and tartness. I found peach nectar in the "international" section of the grocery in a soda-like can made by Jumex (from Mexico.) It's great for a summer picnic, but I keep the ingredients on hand just so I can make this whenever. If you find good frozen peaches, the whole thing takes 2 minutes to prep (do chill it overnight though; you've got to let the fruit soak to bring out the flavors.) Absolute A+

    I make this for all my get togethers. It's always a hit. Tastes good when you first make it. Tastes better if you let it sit.
