Metaxa Sangria

This is a perfect sangria recipe for any time of the year. Use whatever fruit is in season to create infinite variations.


1/2 cup Metaxa Brandy 2 - 3 Tbsp. agave nectar 1 small orange, thinly sliced 1 small lemon, thinly sliced 3 cups diced watermelon, or other seasonal fruit 1 750 ml bottle red wine


In a pitcher, combine all ingredients and stir around with a spoon, crushing some of the melon. Refrigerate to let the flavors marry for at least 2 hours before serving or overnight. Serve over ice, garnished with watermelon wedges or slices of citrus.

This looks great ! What type / Variety of Red Wine do you recommend - does it need to be a better quality or just a Generic red table wine. Thanks

Hi Steve, that’s a great question! For this particular sangria recipe, I recommend using a merlot or syrah. I also like to use a Spanish Rioja wine, too!

Thank you. The Spanish Red looks interesting. I will be doing this soon.
I made the Grapefruit Negroni yesterday and loved it. I think I put too much Grapefruit juice in it though. I will try again in a few mins using less. Thanks.
