Sangria - where to buy or how to make?

While abroad I fell in love with Sangria. I was going to bring some home but I was concerned about my luggage weight. I have failed to find any in the shops.

Where can I buy this stuff here in Ireland?
Is it easy to make?
If so, what do I need?

All help welcome people as I need a fix asap. Cold turkey has well and truly set in.

I think I saw what looked like Sangria being sold in Aldi over the weekend. Dunno what it'd be like though.

Had the exact same situation but had the benefit of girlfriend who lived in Spain.

Just mix
- 3/4 parts Red Wine
- 1 part Orangeade (Fanta is fine)
- 2 measures Peach Vodka (Im sure any fruity vodka would do)
- 2 x Cinnamon sticks

and enjoy...

Quantities are a complete estimate, give it a shot and you'll find the right mix.

I make mine with...

250ml Gin
1 bottle (750ml) red wine
2 litres Fanta Orange

Loads of chopped fruit & a squeeze of fresh lime juice never hurts

Try dunnes for bottles of it. The stuff they have is in a triangle shaped bottle with orange-ish lable and is quite nice (I thought anyway). While not as strong as straight wine it's about 7-8%
