Recently I’ve had a constant craving for sangria. My favorite sangria has chunks of fruit that you can eat up when you are finished drinking up.

Servings: 15-20 glasses, depending on the glass size


  • 8 cups dry red wine
  • 8 cups apple juice
  • 1 small grapefruit, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 medium orange, sliced thin crosswise
  • 1 medium lemon, sliced thin crosswise
  • 1 small pear, diced
  • 1 medium apple, diced


  1. Combine the wine, juice, and grapefruit in a large pitcher. Mix well, cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. The following day, add the orange and lemon slices, pear, and apple to the wine. Refrigerate for a further 3 hours.
  3. Mix well and serve over ice.
