Grand Marnier Sangria
I had this at a local, classy fish restaurant (the Naked Fish). It was really quite tasty so I asked for the recipe. Here's how you create a Grand Marnier Sangria, with lots of fruit and orange flavor!
Grand Marnier is an orange flavored liqueur. You can substitute in Cointreau or Triple sec.
1 750ml bottle Woodbridge Cabernet
4 shots Grand Marnier
6 cherries, sliced
2 oranges, segmented
1 lemon, quartered
1 lime, quartered
Mix together the red wine, Grand Marnier, cherries, oranges, lemon and lime in a large bowl or pitcher. Allow the sangria to sit for a few hours. Strain and serve over ice.
To turn this into a single-glass sangria recipe, a typical assumption is that one 750ml bottle of wine yields four large glasses of wine. Divide all ingredients shown by four. If you're making just one glass worth you probably don't want to wait for the overnight soaking. If the mixture doesn't soak, you just won't get as much of the fruit / berry flavors permeating the sangria.

Note: I created these sangria recipes and have had them online for years. If you find similar sangria recipes elsewhere, it's because someone copied my idea. I do appreciate it when visitors write in to warn me about the plagiarism - but usually there's not much I can do about it! What's really funny is when they copy my design right down to my sangria pitcher. That's a bit much :)
