Winter Sangria

Prep Time 10 mins
Total Time 10 mins
Servings 8


  • 1 bottle of light-bodied red wine (I like Pinot Noir)
  • 1 cup orange juice or apple juice
  • 1/3 cup brandy
  • 1/3 cup orange liqueur (Triple Sec or Grand Marnier)
  • 1/4 cup simple syrup
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 apple, cored and thinly sliced (or diced)
  • 1 green pear, cored and thinly sliced (or diced)
  • 1/2 grapefruit, de-seeded and thinly sliced (or another sweet citrus)
  • 1/3 cup pomegranate arils (or cranberries)
  • Rosemary, to serve


  • In a pitcher, combine the red wine, orange or apple juice, brandy, orange liqueur, and simple syrup. Give it a good stir. Carefully add the cinnamon sticks and fruit. Gently stir, cover, and let it sit in the fridge for at least three hours, preferably overnight.
  • Serve the winter sangria over ice. Gently roll a small sprig of rosemary in-between your hands to release the oils. Garnish the sangria with the rosemary. Enjoy!
