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 in a white bowl with a sliced blood orange on a wooden cutting board.

Fresh Cranberries – These are usually easy to find around the holiday season!

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.
