  • 2 large ice cube trays


For the ice cubes

  • chunks of fruit from below
  • Water

For the sangria

  • 9 ounces fresh strawberries (255g)
  • 2 green apples
  • 1 mango
  • 1 white nectarine (or peach)
  • 6 to 8 fresh mint sprigs
  • 2 lemons
  • 10 ounces white rum (I used Bacardi) (280ml)
  • 2 cups apple juice (475 ml)
  • 2 bottles white wine (1.5 litres) (6.3 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (optional - I didn't use any, but feel free if you like it sweeter)


To make the ice cubes

  • At least four eyes ahead of time, make the ice cubes. Chop some of the fruit you will use in the sangria and add to a large ice cube tray. Fill with water an freeze. I mixed and matched different fruits in each ice cube.

To make the sangria

  • Chop and slice the fruit and add it to a large jug.
  • Pour in the rum, apple juice and white wine.
  • Stir well, add the mint and refrigerate for at least two hours.

To serve

  • Add an ice cube to each glass and garnish with a slice of fruit. Pour!


Refrigerate the sangria for at least 2 hours and up to 24.
Don't add the ice cubes directly to the jug of sangria, they'll melt and dilute the drink.
Use fresh, ripe fruit.
