Blood Orange Sangria

This refreshing and delicious cocktail is great for making ahead of time, since it tastes better the longer it sits!

Serves 4-6

Ingredients

  • 6 blood oranges
  • 2 (750ML) bottles of pinot grigio
  • 1 cup club soda
  • 1/2 cup brandy
  • 12 ounce of strawberries, sliced
  • 1 pint of raspberries
  • 1 apple, chopped
  • 1/2 cup sugar, for glass rimming

Prepare

  1. Zest one of the blood oranges and combine it with the sugar in a small bowl. Rub the sugar and zest together with your fingers until fragrant. Juice four of the blood oranges, discarding any seeds or pith. Chop the remaining blood oranges into pieces.
  2. In a large pitcher, combine the wine, brandy, blood oranges juice, club soda, apples, strawberries, raspberries and blood oranges. Stir well to combine. Place the orange sugar on a plate, then run a lemon, lime or orange slice around the rim of each glass. Dunk each glass in the sugar, coating well. Fill each glass with a few ice cubes, then add some of the fruit from the sangria. Pour the sangria into each glass and serve!
