The Best Christmas Sangria
Cheers, friends! Tis the season for an easy, delicious Christmas drink that’s perfect for a crowd! This “pitcher perfect” Christmas Sangria is full of festive cranberry and blood orange flavor. It’s SO delicious, I make it every December!
This Recipe’s Must-Haves!
This sangria goes with any holiday meal! We love to serve it alongside this beef tenderloin roast every Christmas Eve! I look forward to that meal every year.
Christmas Sangria Ingredients
- Red Wine (1 bottle) – Don’t break the bank here, save your best red wines to enjoy on their own. Opt for an affordable, fruitier red wine for this sangria.
- Cranberry Juice
- Grand Marnier – You can sub in Cointreau if you like
- Lime Juice
- Blood Orange Juice (juice of 1 blood orange) – If you can’t find blood oranges, you can substitute any orange variety
Garnish Your Christmas Sangria
I always love to jazz up any cocktail, but especially a festive Christmas drink. Serve this Christmas Sangria garnished with cranberries and sliced blood oranges. You could even add in a rosemary sprig for a pop of green color!
Christmas sangria couldn’t be easier, it’s a “pour it in and you’re done” kind of recipe which is truthfully my favorite!
Plus, it’s best served after sitting overnight in the refrigerator so you can fix it and forget it – until the next day.
You can even jazz it up and put it in a fun glass (snagged mine from HomeGoods this week, aren’t they cute?) or heck, drink it out of a plastic tumbler, it’ll taste just as delicious!
Now just pick your favorite holiday movie, grab a glass (or two) of this Cranberry Blood Orange Sangria and let all your troubles float away! At least for a few minutes, right? Then don’t forget to move that darn elf.
