The Best & Easiest Sangria Recipe Ever!

A Sangria Recipe to Make and the Best Sangria to Buy

Ed and I had a quiet day just hanging out by our pool enjoying the sunshine and steaks on the grill.  We have been traveling a lot and it was nice to just be at home.

We also enjoyed some festive drinks, Ed is a Margarita kind of guy in the summer, I like Sangria, cut with club soda and ice.  I was going to make up my friend Jaye’s  BEST EVER recipe for it, but since I was going to be the only one drinking it, I did the next best thing – I poured  the most delish store bought Sangria EVER!


I have noticed that there have been a lot of web sites and blogs lately that claim to have the best Sangria EVER!  I have to smile, since I know I have the best recipe ever and not only that – the easiest one to make, too!

The best Store-Bought-Sangria Madria Sangria

My sister brought a few bottles of this Madria Sangria to a party at my house a few years ago.  It was a hit and is now a summer staple.


Poured in a pitcher with slices of fruit added make it appear like you whipped it up yourself. It sure tastes like you did.

This is not a sponsored post, just something I enjoy and wanted to share with you. One of those tips that helps make life a little bit easier while not compromising style and in this case taste.


If you would like to make Sangria from scratch, here is the recipe I love.

I asked my friend for the recipe after she made it for a party many years ago.  It is simple to make, but be prepared mid-party to whip up more – as it seems to be a crowd pleaser

    Interested in trying your recipe. What brands of wine and brandy do you use?

  2. I have been using the Madria Sangria for a couple of years and adding fruit and/or berries like you do. Sometimes I add a little simple syrup as well. It’s delicious!

    Diane, Madria was our favorite afternoon by the pool drink in CT. I have not looked for it in SC , but now that I saw your post I will go hunt for it!

    I love sangria! Will have to send hubby on a reconnaissance mission of all the local liquor stores for the bottled version. We live in Maryland so wine can only be purchased at a liquor store – never at a grocery store. I have one question – do you cut the bottled sangria with club soda?

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Elaine – I am happy to hear that the store locator still works and you found where you can buy the Sangria. I love it. To answer your question… Yes.. I sometimes do add club soda to it when I want less sweetness. :-) I do adds lots of ice also and that does water it down a little, too if you find it too sweet. I hope you enjoy and have a wonderful holiday weekend.

    Yum! And it it is super easy! :D

  6. I found this post through Pinterest – in my feed as a Christmas drink – maybe because of the straws? Anyway, the picture is gorgeous and I have to save it but I’m so glad you shared both the “cheater” recipe ;) and your own. How can we go wrong with the best of both worlds? Thanks!

    I could not find the Madria Sangria, but I am going to save to get the ingredients for the from scratch recipe you just gave us. Thank you again for giving it to us. (I live on the west side of Jacksonville, Fla….. so if anyone has found the store bought one, please share?)

      Hi Diana – Nice to see you back here. Do you still get to enjoy reading blogs when you are at work? I remember you telling me that about a year ago. Missed seeing your comments show up in my email. They always made me smile. Happy to see you doing well.
