Back on April 24th, we asked Lot18 members on Facebook to share their best sangria recipes for a chance to win a $50 credit. We got some fantastic submissions from the traditional to unique. After rigorous testing in the office, we were able to pick two winners.

Red Wine Winner: Shelly Roy's Fruity Sangria

1 part red table wine

1 part lemonade

1 part pomegranate soda

1 fresh lemon and lime, sliced

1 fresh orange, sliced

1 lb. fresh sliced strawberries

1 whole fresh pineapple, cubed

In a pitcher, add in all of the diced fruits along with equal amounts of red table wine, lemonade and pomegranate soda. Use equal parts of wine, soda and lemonade.

White Wine Winner: Douglas Burleson's Spring Sangria

‎1 bottle cava [we also like it with Pinot Grigio]

2 oz. St. Germain

2 oz. white grape juice

3-4 strawberries, quartered

1/2 peach, sliced

a few sprigs of mint

ice

We combined all ingredients in a pitcher and sipped happily -- the elderflower liqueur made it perfect for springtime.

You can enjoy these recipes from Cinco de Vino all the way through the warmer months. Congratulations to the winners, and enjoy!
