Sangria By The Gallon

Thursday, April 16, 2015

I love a good party and no party is ever complete without a drink of the night kinda theme.  Sangria is pretty much always the perfect choice for spring and summer deck boozing in the warmer weather with ladies who like wine. Or anyone who likes a wine infused fruit in a glass.  I cannot tell you how many times I have made this particular recipe and it is killer. It comes from a very well known Tapas restaurant in Atlanta called Eclipse di Luna, home of the $10 bottomless sangria brunch. After which you will nappy nap all afternoon so plan accordingly if you go.

Not only are the tapas legendary but so is the sangria and I have the recipe for you today. It was published in the paper here years ago when I actually read the paper and I have gotten many a friend and neighbor completely drunk off this stuff more than once... so be careful. The recipe makes 5 gallons... yes, it's for a party, but feel free to scale it down... or not. It will knock you on your ass but it is so good!!!

Eclipse Di Luna Sangria

2 gallons red wine
1 gallon white wine
1 liter Triple Sec
1 liter brandy
1 liter 7-Up
1/2 liter pineapple juice
1/2 liter cranberry juice

In a large container combine all ingredients in order. 
Add chopped fresh fruit (apples, pineapples, oranges, etc.)
Chill for three hours and serve over ice. 

Be careful, it comes with a hammer.



  1. I for reals snickered out loud at the "comes with a hammer" part! Cracks me up! And I also cut and pasted this into a Word document for future use. I need to have a party apparently.

  2. nappy nappy all afternoon - it's a doozy alright!! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  3. I keep meaning to make some of this in the summer!!

  4. What?!?! I need a trip to this place like asap. 10 bucks for bottomless sangria. Yes, please!! Thanks for linking up!!

  5. This sounds amazing and I actually have bottles of wine left over that my aunt and uncle gave me a few years ago.

  6. This looks like a good recipe but unfortunately or I must say fortunately, I do not drink wine and have never even tasted.
