Lol I'm not that much of a loner, of course I had people over to try it haha. But the excessive drinking part is true =S. Not good!!
Sangria is so easy to make - it is literally red wine, triple sec (or Cointreau - orange flavoured liqueur), chopped up fruits and bit of lemon juice/lemonade.
And the cheaper the wine the better! Well, that's what the sangria aficionados apparently say...my bottle cost me $6.
I also went all fancy and put it in a beautiful pitcher =P....
So what I did was soak my chopped up fruit (1 orange, 1/2 large lemon, 1/3 of a pineapple, 1 apple - use what you like) in about 1/3 cup triple sec and 1/3 cup sugar for about 30 mins. Then added the bottle of red wine (any type will do, I probably wouldn't use something too sweet, or if you do, add less sugar) and lemonade to taste/soften the alcoholic blow, and let it sit in the fridge for at least 8 hours. The longer you leave it the more the flavours develop and you end up with a rich sweet gorgeous sangria.

Really good way to fuel a party (and it's very effective ;) hahah) xx
