Red Wine Sangria

All this sunshine has me CRAVING sangria. My friend was having some people over, so I decided to make a pitcher for all of us to enjoy. I raided my fridge and used the fruit I had on hand. You could definitely mix up the fruit, and use whatever you think would pair best with the wine you are using. I had a bottle of Merlot, and decided to include the following ingredients:

  • 1 grapefruit
  • 1 blood orange
  • 1 kiwi
  • 1 apple
  • 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 can club soda
  • 1 can ginger ale


    I cut up all of my fruit and arranged them in my pitcher. I then poured in the bottle of red wine and the sugar, and let it sit overnight in my fridge. I added the club soda and ginger ale at the last minute to make sure my Sangria was nice and bubbly ๐Ÿ˜€


    It was SO refreshing! I’m looking forward to trying some white wine sangria recipes this summer.
