Sparkling Cranberry Orange Sangria Recipe
Lime, orange and cranberry are flavors that go perfectly together. This makes this recipe about one of the most tasty around! You can use any red wine you enjoy. If you want to go for authentic Spanish flavor, try Rioja, Spain's famous red wine. If you're looking for a generally fruity flavor, Shiraz and Chianti work well.
1 750ml bottle red wine
1 cup orange juice
1 cup cranberry juice
1/2 cup cranberry liqueur
1 lime, wheeled
1 orange, wheeled
2 cups orange sparkling water
Prepare a large pitcher or bowl. Add in the bottle of red wine, orange juice, cranberry juice, cranberry liqueur, lime and orange.
Let refrigerate for at least an hour, or ideally overnight.
Just before serving over ice, add in the sparkling water. That way it retains its fresh bubble!
To turn this into a single-glass sangria recipe, a typical assumption is that one 750ml bottle of wine yields four large glasses of wine. Divide all ingredients shown by four. If you're making just one glass worth you probably don't want to wait for the overnight soaking. If the mixture doesn't soak, you just won't get as much of the fruit / berry flavors permeating the sangria.

Note: I created these sangria recipes and have had them online for years. If you find similar sangria recipes elsewhere, it's because someone copied my idea. I do appreciate it when visitors write in to warn me about the plagiarism - but usually there's not much I can do about it! What's really funny is when they copy my design right down to my sangria pitcher. That's a bit much :)
