Weekends spent on the beach in the summer in Jersey (no, not Seaside where the cast of Jersey Shore spent their time…) are not complete without a glass (or 4) of Sangria. It is super easy to make and versatile!


  • 3 bottles of Red Wine (we used Seaglass Pinot Noir)
  • 3.5 cups of Vodka
  • 2 cups of Triple sec
  • 1.5 cups of Brandy
  • 8 cans of Citrus Fresca
  • The juice of 4 big oranges (I cut them up to add to the mix as well after squeezing bc I like the way it looks)
  • The juice of 5 limes (same thing as oranges)
  • 4 Gala apples, cubed
  • 1.5 TBSP cinnamon, optional (thanks to my friend Anne for the new addition of this. It’s a game changer…however, if you are using white wine, SKIP the cinnamon)


Throw it all into a big container and let it sit overnight to give the apples time to soak up some alcohol.

Serve over ice the next day!


If you are using white wine, I suggest to try and use peaches instead of the apples! And do not forget to omit the cinnamon if you are using white (sorry that you had to be the taste tester for that, Aunt Debbie haha)
