Cranberry Sangria

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

Ready In:


  • 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)


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

  1. 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.
  2. I didn't do the whole recipe. I thought 2 pints of each juice would be too much for the quantity of wine. That's my preference. I prefer it more potent LOL So I did it in 2 glasses. Near 2 ounces of red wine (merlot) and 1 ounce of each juice. It was a nice taste. Not too sweet. Very refreshing. Thanks Emmy. Made for the Babes of ZWT4
  3. I really liked this one. I made it with cranberry juice cocktail and some "chillable" red boxed wine. It was surprisingly good and is a keeper for us !
  4. Very nice blend of flavours & simple to make with what I usually have on hand. Will make again, thanks! For ZWT III
  5. I made half a batch for PAC Spring 2007, and it was a nice way to use up a bottle of wine I'd opened for cooking. It's a very low maintenance sangria using ingredients we always have on hand. Thanks EmmyDuckie!
