Simple and Fruity Red Wine Sangria. Made with fresh fruit, red wine, brandy and pomegranate juice. Perfect Fall or Winter cocktail.
This is one of the BEST sangria recipes you will ever make. It’s fruity, not too sweet and loaded with fruits and citrus. Sangria is one of my favorite drinks to make for entertaining. It’s easy to make and can be customized any way you like.
All you need for this sangria is a good dry table wine, brandy, fresh fruit, and one of your favorite juices. I love using pomegranate juice however pineapple or orange juice would also go great in this sangria.
This red wine sangria is loaded with oranges, strawberries and apples. You can always use fruits you have on hand. Limes and blueberries would go great in this!
This sangria is super versatile and takes less than 15 minutes to make!
This is an easy cocktail to make for large parties because it only has a few ingredients and is easy to double or triple.
For best results allow the sangria to set overnight. The fruit has more time to infuse into the wine. Don’t adjust the taste until you let it sit for a while. If you taste before it sets you may want to add more sugar. Don’t! The sangria gets sweeter and fruitier as it sets.
To sweeten up the sangria I added pomegranate juice as well as an easy simple syrup.
This sangria starts with a simple syrup made of equal parts sugar and water. The mixture is boiled until the sugar has dissolved. This usually takes 1-2 minutes.
Next, red wine, brandy, pomegranate juice, apples, oranges, and strawberries are added to a large pitcher. Add in cooled simple syrup and stir. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or for best results overnight.
This sangria serves about 4-6 people but I usually double the recipe so everyone can have a couple glasses.
Skip the pre-made bottled sangria and try this fast and easy at home version.
For a lighter summery version try my white wine sangria. Serve this at your next holiday party or get together!
