Served this with New Year's Dinner. Everyone loved it! It was light enough to have a few, but also very tasty! Followed the recipe exactly as written. Used just cheap dry red wine. Can't wait for summer so we can try the white version!

We made the white version of this Sangria. It was easy, good and had a pretty presentation. I didn't use orange liquor instead I substituted triple sec. Made it not quite so powerful.

I made the red recipe exactly as written and the sangria is delicious. I used 2 bottles of Charles Shaw Merlot from Trader Joe's. Dinner guests loved it and I served it with a bar-b-cue steak. I think the peach nectar adds a wonderful little flavor to this drink. Am anxious to try the white version!
