Restaurant recipes from Olive Garden™ have become very popular, and the Sangria seems to be one a lot of people are looking for lately. The Olive Garden™ Sangria is a refreshing alcoholic beverage that’s perfect for any outdoor (or indoor) party.
Part of the secret to this recipe tasting just like the one you’ll find in Olive Garden™ is the type of wine you use. Most people suggest using a Lambrusco wine. Don’t spend too much money on the wine since you’re just going to drown it in the other ingredients. Also make sure you’re mixing the sugar water (simple syrup) before adding it to the blend.

- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 1/2 liters red table wine
- 1 cup grenadine
- 2 cups cranberry juice cocktail
- 1 1/4 cups sweet vermouth
- strawberries, cut into thirds
- oranges, slice thin, then quartered
- crushed ice
Make the simple syrup by dissolving the sugar in the water in a small pot over a medium to medium-high heat. You want it to get hot enough to dissolve, but be careful you don't burn the sugar. I bring it to a very easy rolling boil.
In a larger container (about 3 quarts) combine the simple syrup along with the remaining ingredients (excluding the crushed ice). Then place it into the refrigerator for about 4 hours, preferably overnight.
Pour mix, including fruit, into your serving glass and add the crushed ice.
