Cranberry Sangria

Cranberry Sangria

This tasty Cranberry Sangria treat is filled with citrus, wine, brandy, cranberry and subtle hints of cinnamon. The cranberry juice adds a sweet and tart taste to this delicious cocktail, while the cinnamon gives a sweet and spicy smell.

To make sangria, start with preparing all your fruits and add them into a pitcher. Often, oranges and limes are used for sangria, but feel free to use pretty much anything else you like. Then add in the liquor, optional fruit juice and a sweetener.

You can use either red or white wine win your sangria, depends on what you prefer. For a red sangria I like to use dry red wine, like a cabernet sauvignon. If you like a slightly lighter sangria you can use a pinot noir.

Remember to allow your Sangria to rest for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight, before serving!
