    Hi. sorry if this is somewhere else, if it is then please redirect me!

    We are planning a bbq on saturday and my boyfriend and his friends are planning on making sangria. Now obviously it is wine, brandy and fruit syns to think about.
    But has anyone ever made it successfully with sweetner?
    Or does anyone have a lower syn recipe for other summer cocktails that I could have instead?
    Thanks

    No idea. sorry. Depends on how much of each thing is in there... sweetner might work though. Try it and see?

    This is a "recipe" from the SW website for:

    Virtually Free sangria
    Soak your choice of fresh fruit in a 50ml glass of port overnight. Add a bottle of chilled Diet Tropical Lilt just before serving. Tip: You could substitute a glass of red wine for port if desired.

    Not a true sangria but definitely fewer syns than the real thing!

    Chop up loads of orange and lemon in a large jug add a measure of brandy and leave to soak in, stir in a cheap spanish red, tesco value is ideal, and top up with 7up zero to taste - serve with lots of ice, absolutely delicious, and you can make it go as far, or as little as your syns allow.

    Thanks for the idea, although the lack of alcohol may be a problem! Haha

    I may try the one with the tesco red in...that sounds good (if we ever get any more sun).

    My spanish friend used to make Sangria with just a cheap bottle of red, fanta, sliced oranges and his own blend of spices (including a cinnamon stick), so if you get diet fanta and loads of free fruit I think that would work pretty well just mixed with some red wine!
