The Perfect Red Sangria Recipe:

You’re here for the red sangria recipe, so let’s get it. This recipe is modeled after our popular Santeria Sangria, which is a blend between traditional, Spanish sangria and a refreshing, unique Boozn Sam’s take in the form of floral notes that balance out the sweet fruit flavors.

  • 1 medium sized red apple
  • 1 medium sized oranges, sliced
  • 1/2 pint of fresh raspberries
  • 1/2 pint of fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 pint of strawberries
  • Dried Rose or Hibiscus Petals

  3. Let sit for an hour (overnight is better.)
  4. Grab the glass of your choosing. Fill the glass half full with ice. Add your sangria.

The Extended Version for making Red Sangria

Although sangria’s appeal lies in its versatility and the way it brings people together over food and drink, nothing beats a good ol’ fashioned red sangria recipe. This recipe is modeled after our popular Santeria Sangria, which is a blend between traditional, Spanish sangria and a refreshing, unique Boozn Sam’s take in the form of floral notes that balance out the sweet fruit flavors.  

It’s perfect for all sunny, summer activities. The Beach. Grilling out. Bike Rides. In your coffee mug at playgrounds with your kids. Running with the bulls in Spain. Proof I did that:

The word “sangria” itself is derived from the Spanish word “sangre,” meaning “blood,” which refers to the deep red color of traditional red sangria. The earliest documented references to sangria date back to the Middle Ages when it was common practice to mix wine with water to purify it and make it safer to drink.

We’re keeping things Spanish around here. Hola. So, the wines provided are sweeter, lighter Spanish wines. But, if you want to spice things up you can always use a local wine from your area. I’m a big fan of a rose, like this rose called Row 25, from my friends at Bayfield Winery. 

Ingredients:

  • A bottle of Tempranillo or Grenache red wine
  • 1 medium sized red apple
  • 1 medium sized oranges, sliced
  • 1/2 pint of fresh raspberries
  • 1/2 pint of fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 pint of strawberries
  • Dried Rose or Hibiscus Petals
  • Ice cubes

Final Notes:

The longer you let your red sangria recipe sit the stronger the flavors will infuse and the more intense your sangria will be. I like to let my drinks meld overnight. If you’re short on time, and want to skip the hassle of buying all the ingredients, buy the kit. Many of the ingredients are organic, and, since they are dried ingredients, they are more potent. You can get a great sangria in 10 minutes!
