If you are talking about the sangria soda bottles the red wing capper will work. I just put one on an empty bottle to test. My cider is still in secondary so I have not used them yet. I can only assume that they should work. Will be another couple of months before my cider is bottled and carbonated.

The green ones up top I think will, the Martinelli's ones are screw on caps.

How heavy are this sangria bottles? They look like they would make fantastic saison bottles if they are heavy enough.

If you are carbonating them to 3.2 volumes, I would think they would be fine. From what I can find commercial soda's are carbonated anywhere from 2.5 to 4 volumes.

I will be using these bottles in about 4 weeks to bottle my cider. I plan to carbonate the cider so I will post how they work.
