Ghetto Fabulous Sangria Recipe

My Sangria Recipe has very humble beginnings. When I was in my mid to late 20’s (in the voice of Hedwig the rockstar) I was one of the founding members of the Broke Down Bitch Club. In a nutshell, we were a bunch of broke ass gay men who loved to eat, drink and party as cheaply as possible.

Trust me when I tell you we knew every cheap drink special on every day of the week within 10 miles of our stomping grounds. I am still amazed that I didn’t die from the side effects of cheap alcohol!!

I liked to throw parties. (alot!) I didn’t have much money back then – I learned to make a dollar holla! One of the things I would make would be my world famous Ghetto Fabulous Sangria Recipe. My Sangria Recipe was cheap, easy, and everyone loved it!!

Flash forward about 13 years – I am married, have a house, still like to throw parties. Maybe I am not as cheap as I used to be, however, I am still into things that are tasty and easy to make. (The fact that it’s cheap is a bonus)

Don’t let the cheapness of the ingredients fool you. This Sangria Recipe is tasty, not too sweet, and refreshing. Trust me your friends will love it!  I rarely make my Ghetto Fabulous Sangria Recipe in front of friends. I want an unbiased opinion when it is consumed – then I spill the beans on what is in it. By the end of the night everyone wants the recipe.

I like to bring my game on by serving it up all fancy looking. It’s a classic bait and switch. It’s all about the presentation baby! If it looks pretty people want to drink it.

If I am serving it poolside I use this large 2 gallon mason jar dispenser with super fab and super safe multi colored plastic wine cups.

Who doesn't love a good sangria recipe? The trick is to make it a little sweet (not too sweet) refreshing, smooth and strong enough to keep things interesting without getting too cray cray. Ladies and Gays (do straight men drink sangria?) I give you my world famous Sangria Recipe. (I made it once for friends in France with much better wine - I didn't want to get lynched by a bunch of gay Frenchmen!)

Ingredients
  • 2 medium - large Oranges
  • 2 medium Apples - your choice
  • 1 cup Brandy - or non flavored is good too
  • 1 handfull Grapes or Blueberries - this is mainly for color
  • 1/2 cup Cointreau or Orange Liquer
  • 12 oz Can of Sprite - or any lemon lime soda
  • 3/4 box Franzia Chillable Red Wine - Trust me it's good.
Servings: Thirsty People
Units:
Instructions
  1. Slice the apple and the oranges into half moon shapes. I like to make them medium to thin slices.
  2. If you use grapes cut them in half. Using blueberries? You can leave blueberries whole.

  3. Put them all into your 2 gallon mason jar dispenser.
  4. Fill up the 2 gallon mason jar with Franzia Chillable Red Wine about 3/4 of the way. This will be about 3/4 of the box.
  5. Add 1 cup brandy.
  6. Add 1/2 cup orange liqueur.
  7. Add Sprite or lemon lime soda.
  8. Stir and let set for at least 2 hours. I prefer overnight - It tastes better because fruit infuses the wine. If you have to, it can be consumed without waiting - it just won't be as good.

  9. I filled up two quart sized bags with ice and put into my mason jar dispenser. This helps keep it cold without diluting it with water.
  10. Serve over ice. Enjoy!
