Spiced Cranberry Sangría Recipe

Yumm! This Spiced Cranberry Sangria is a perfect holiday cocktail to enjoy with friends and family! I think that I'll surprise my family tonight with this festive beverage! Check back tomorrow for the tasting notes. Happy Thanksgiving week!

By dressing up classic Spanish sangría with Spiced Simple Syrup and tart cranberries, Chef Jose Garces has created an ideal cocktail for a winter holiday celebration. Chef Garces serves this with an apple chip garnish for a more elegant finish, but even without it it’s delightful.
What to buy: If you can’t find a Tempranillo rosé, a less earthy Grenache rosé is a suitable substitute.

For the fruit:

  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, large dice

  • 1 (750-milliliter) bottle Tempranillo rosé
  • 1/2 cup ruby port wine

For the sangría:
  1. Add all ingredients to the fruit mixture and stir to combine.
  2. Refrigerate until chilled, and serve over ice.
