What is Sangria?
Sangria is an alcoholic beverage that originated in Spain and Portugal. There are traditionally two types of sangria – red and white. Red Sangria is made with red wine and white sangria with white wine. Sangria typically consists of wine, fruit juice or juices, and chopped fruit. It can also include additional liquors like brandy, whiskey, or other flavored alcoholic beverages.
The first thing you’ll need to make this amazing blood orange cranberry sangria recipe is my base recipe for wine sangria!
In order to make Blood Orange Cranberry Wine Sangria you will need the ingredients in the base recipe for sangria plus the following:
- Blood Oranges
- If you can’t find blood oranges, navel oranges will work. I just love the color of the blood orange in this recipe and it’s worth it if you can find them.
- Fresh Cranberries
- Cranberry Juice
- Orange Juice
- Fresh squeezed is always best here and I love to squeeze the blood oranges. However, if you don’t have enough oranges orange juice will work just as well.
Making the Sangria
Making Blood Orange Cranberry Wine Sangria is so effortless! Simply follow the base recipe adding your orange juice and cranberry juice for the fruit juice and using the cranberries and blood oranges.
Simple syrup can be easily made by mixing equal parts sugar and water and simmering until the sugar is fully dissolved. Otherwise, you can purchase simple syrup.
Mix all ingredients except Prosecco and 1 blood orange in a large pitcher, muddling the cranberries and oranges a bit. Chill for 24 hours. When ready to serve, add Prosecco and stir gently. Pour into glasses and garnish with remaining fruit.
- 1 bottle Riesling Wine
- 1 bottle Presecco
- 1 cup cranberry juice
- 1 cup orange juice (fresh squeezed or bottled)
- 2 blood oranges
- 1 cup fresh cranberries
- 1/2 cup club soda
- 1/2 cup simple syrup
1. Slice one blood orange and add to a pitcher.
2. Add fresh cranberries to the pitcher and muddle the fruit.
3. Add all remaining ingredients except the Prosecco. Stir.
4. Allow to chill in the fridge for 24 hours.

You can use freshly squeezed blood oranges but I recommend buying at least 3-4 blood oranges if you want to go this way. One to muddle, 1-2 to squeeze, and one for garnish.
