This book is great. I did not really know what a tasteful experience different types of sangria could bring to the tastebuds. This book is well written and easily readible. The illustrations are great. It is set up into different sangria categories.

Red Wine Sangria

White wine sangria

Sparkling wine sangria

Rose wine sangria

Spanish Tapas (appetizer section)

RED WINE SANGRIA-

Sparkling apple cider- Had it at Thanksgiving and it went fast. So fall themed.

Limonada Espana- Peach and lemon sangria with Licor 43 yummy!

WHITE WINE SANGRIA-

Strawberry mint-very refreshing!

Roman Holiday- grapes, peaches, lemons, and limoncello liquor. I felt like i was on a summer trip in Rome.

SPARKLING SANGRIAS-

Havana Banana- I know bananas in sangria I though it was weird to, but mixed with sparkling champagne, rum triple sec, and pineapples. It was a tropical oasis.

There are soo many more recipes that I have yet to try. I think there is a recipe for any occasion. Summer, fall, spring. For spanish, italian, even japenese style sangrias. They even have a sangria using hot peppers for you spice lovers out there.

Enjoy!!

You can even mix and match ingredients.

I was very pleased with this book. I got it in the dead of winter in Michigan and made a new, sunny, summery pitcher every weekend as an escape. The recipes are simple, with enticing pictures. It is not a big book and has just enough recipes to inspire and teach you a basic formula, in which you can then plug in your own ingredients. I have made many succesful ones on my own just with whatever looks good in the produce section, and following the formula. A bottle of wine, a couple of shots of liquor, fresh fruit, and something fizzy. Delish!

Finally a book about delicious Sangria and the many ways that it can be made using a variety of wines, spirits, and fresh fruits. This book is full of great recipes, not only for sangria, but tapas as well. I'm really looking forward to spring and summer so I can include some of these when entertaining. Especially the Sangri-la with fresh pineapple, orange, lime, coconut cream, Grand Marnier and white wine. Know it will be a winner!

A slim book, but organized by type of wine (red, white, rose, sparkling) you'll be using for your base. There's a couple of standard recipes, some more unusual ones and once you've tried 3 or 4 (and you'll definitely find more than one you want to try), you'll have gotten the hang of it and be inspired to create some of your own. I originally bought this as a gift and was so impressed by it that I bought a copy for myself. Since then, I've bought 3 or 4 copies: basically, as soon as someone I know tells me s/he enjoys sangria, I buy them a copy of this book. I looked at a couple of other books and was disappointed by the recipes- they didn't seem different enough from one another or that different from what I could come up with on my own.
