Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist

Cook's Notes:

Using frozen mixed berry blends will cut down on time, but it yields a less pleasant product as the fruit tends to not hold as well once thawed. For a quick and easy fix though, it should work fine.

You can use strawberry, raspberry, or blueberry liqueur in place of cherry, if you prefer.

You can substitute a regular orange for the blood orange, if preferred.

When choosing a red wine, I find it very helpful to read the description. I tend to stay away from dryer wines that are described as smoky or spicy and that have hints of tobacco, coffee, espresso, pepper, or oak because I personally do not care for a smoky or spicy sangria. I like merlots, because they tend to incorporate a lot of bold and jammy fruit-forward flavors.
