This is an authentic version of the popular wine drink. You can add any fruit that you want, but I find that apples and pears absorb all the rum. This one is not diluted with carbonated beverages. I have much success with red Burgundy wine and white rum, though spiced rum is nice too.

I let the fruit soak in the rum and an added 1/2 cup of Triple Sec. I made this with a Merlot (Little Penguin) and with a Blackberry Merlot. It was a lot sneakier when it was made with the Blackberry Merlot, i.e. we got drunk, but it hit us from out of no where. When it was made with the Little Penguin Merlot, it was a little too alcoholic. I solved this by having friends who are alcoholics and don't mind.

I made this for a cookout for my husband's medical school class, and it was a big hit. I used a box of cheap red wine (5 liters for $10.00)and as was suggested, I used spiced rum. I also added lots of other fruit, including apples, pears and cherries, which was really pretty in the glass pitchers. I did have to keep a close eye on the fruit soaking in the rum and sugar that was in the refridgerator, because every time I went to make more sangria, I had to fight off people eating the fruit. I will definitely be using this recipe again and again.

OH MY!! This was fabulous! I used the spiced rum and along with the citrus I added some plum slices. If you desire a less potent Sangria cut the rum in half. The flavor is still wonderful. Freeze orange juice in ice cube trays and add a cube to each individual serving. YUM
