Recipe by EmmyDuckie

I made this up for a Thanksgiving Potluck last year. It was such a hit, I had to make a second bowl!

A very refreshing and different (in a good way) sangria. For some reason, never thought about using cranberries for sangria which is odd since I love them so much and try them in some unusual recipes. I thought the flavours blended nicely for a drink that went down smoothly. Will make again. Made for ZWT4.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 pints cranberry juice (100% juice is best)
  • 2 pints orange juice
  • 1 (750 ml) bottle red wine (I like Beaujolais, but any light fruity red wine will do.)
  • 1 -2 orange, sliced (for garnish)


  1. Chill all ingredients.
  2. Pour juices and wine into punch bowl.
  3. Float orange slices on top.
  4. Variations: You may adjust the proportions of juice to wine, depending on the strength and flavor profile of your particular wine.
  5. This is also good with limes and lemons.
  6. Ice cubes made of frozen juice are a nice addition, or you can freeze the citrus slices and use them to keep sangria cold.
  7. This can be halved, doubled, tripled, etc. easily for any size group.
