Quick and Economical Sangria

Sangria, the festive Spanish drink, is a refreshing blend of wine and fruits. However, traditional preparation can be tedious, especially when it comes to selecting and preparing fresh fruits. The recipe I'm offering today provides a practical and cost-effective solution, without sacrificing the flavor or quality of your sangria.

Using canned and frozen fruits has several advantages. Firstly, canned fruits, such as citrus in syrup, bring natural sweetness, reducing the need for additional sugar. The syrup in which the fruits are preserved infuses the sangria with a sweet and fruity taste, enriching the drink without extra effort. Furthermore, opting for canned fruits saves you the time of preparing fresh fruits, such as peeling and chopping, while ensuring consistent availability and quality, regardless of the season.

Frozen red fruits, on the other hand, are an equally convenient alternative. Not only are they often more budget-friendly than their fresh counterparts, but they also serve a dual purpose in this recipe. In addition to adding a touch of color and flavor, they help cool the sangria, acting as flavored ice cubes that do not dilute the drink.

This quick and affordable sangria recipe is ideal for those who want to enjoy a delicious cocktail without the hassle of preparing fresh fruits. It's perfect for impromptu gatherings, summer barbecues, or simply for treating yourself to a glass of homemade sangria, rich in flavors and easy to prepare.


  • 1.5 liters of red wine
  • 1.5 liters of water
  • 1 liter of apple juice
  • 1 can of canned citrus fruits (such as orange and grapefruit from the St-Mamet brand or equivalent)
  • 250 grams of frozen red fruits

Preparation steps

  1. In a large container, pour the red wine.
  2. Add water and apple juice to the wine. Gently mix to combine.
  3. Open the can of citrus fruits and pour its contents, along with the syrup, into the mixture.
  4. Incorporate the frozen red fruits. They will not only flavor the sangria but also help cool it down.
  5. Let the sangria rest in the refrigerator for at least an hour to allow the flavors to meld.
