Cranberry Orange Sangria Recipe



While shopping I purchased some cranberries and really wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them. I saw a recipe on Facebook for cranberry orange sangria and I was like “this is perfect”. It looked so delicious and refreshing. I made it for the first time for my guest on Christmas and they loved it. The first batch was gone in a flash. So fast that I didn't get any pictures. I decided to make it as well for my aunts birthday dinner and this time actually garnish the cups for all of my guest. It's something about receiving a pretty garnished drink that makes me feel as if I’m on a tropical island somewhere. This time my guest were in all over their drinks. I even froze some cranberries on a wooden sewer instead if using ice cubes. My guest loved how cute the frozen cranberries were. Might I add this drink taste as good as it looks. Me being me, I didn’t use the wine recommend in the recipe, of course, I wasn't running out to the store. I believe that any white wine would do. Typically, when I make regular sangria, I purchase the sangria wine and just add the fruit and sugar. I love how simple this recipe is to make. Plus, having pretty straws around just make it a bonus.

Have you ever tried cranberry orange sangria? Are you a sangria fan?
