I would think that making in advance would make the fruit all gross.  I would just have everything measured out before the day, and recruit some people to help you with chopping the fruit (the hardest part)

I don’t have any awesome recipes…I would just advise to NOT use the mix…it’s sooo nasty

I don’t have the measurements to my recipe yet.  But I need to write them down for the caterers.  Here’s what I use:

 

White wine – something dry and crisp (something Spanish if possible)

White Peach Infused Rum – you can make this or just buy Bacardi Peach

Simple Syrup to taste – you can make or buy this

Then we’re going to use mangoes, peaches, and green apples for some color.  

 

Wish I had some now!

SO jealous! I wanted to do Sangria as well but my caterer wants to charge $1 extra pp even though we’re willing to swap the merlot for it! The premade one want we want them to serve has got to be cheaper than a freaking Merlot.

Here is the recipe we will be mixing for my sister’s wedding reception. Sangria is her fiance’s favorite drink:

2 bottles of red wine (any $10 blend/table wine will do.  I use either Copolla Rosso or Red Truck)

1 can of frozen lemonade

1/2 cup of brandy

1/2 cup of triple sec

1/3 cup of orange juice

1/4 cup of lemon juice

2 cups of ginger ale

stir then add fruit (you can add any kind of fruit you want, but it’s better if you just slice up some lemons/limes/oranges)

Sit at bottom of fridge overnight.

Pour in a nice fancy glass (i.e. margarita glass) over ice (I like crushed ice for this).

Put lips up to glass and drink.

EDIT: @hotchild…this recipe is from a friend and she recommends dropping in non-citrus fruit right before you set it out to serve since only the citrus fruit really affect the taste of the sangria. That should eliminate the gross fruit factor =)
