Sparkling Red Blood Orange Sangria with Orange Liquor

It has been a long year; it’s time for HAPPY HOUR!

Bring Out That Blood Orange Sangria Pitcher!

A drink of Spanish origin, sangria is an alcoholic version of punch that traditionally consists of red wine, sliced fruit, orange juice, and some type of brandy, liquor or rum.

It is believed to get its name from the Spanish word sangre, meaning blood, referencing the color of the most famous Spanish beverage.

I promise this sangria will pair nicely with pretty much all of your Thanksgiving and Christmas delicacies, some will beg to argue the drinks are where it’s at this time of the year. Who am I to say no?! Cheers friends!

There’s a short window of time when you can take advantage of the blood orange season. It never seems to last long enough in my opinion. It starts about now for us here in California. The first variety to hit the market will be the Moro, hence the featured ones here.

Red Blood Orange Sangria with Dasani Sparkling Water

Luckily, now we can get a little flavor boost anytime of the year with a little help from the DASANI® Sparkling Blood Orange water.

In all honesty, friends, if you have a hard time finding blood oranges in your area, just use a mix of regular oranges and grapefruit. Juice those babies and make this sangria like a boss with a flavor boost from DASANI® Sparkling!

The Wine:

If you have a sweet tooth when it comes to cocktails, you might want to use a red Moscato wine, otherwise, your favorite fruity red wine will do. If you feel like being a rebel and want to go for white wine that's also fine, choose a nice crisp fruity white!

  • 7 blood oranges
  • 1 cup DASANI® Sparkling Blood Orange (+ more to taste)
  • 1.5 liter bottle red wine (something fruity or a Moscato)
  • 1/2 cup orange liquor, brandy or rum
  • zest from 1 orange

  • In a pitcher, combine the blood orange juice with the red wine and orange liquor. 
  • Slice the two remaining oranges and add them to the pitcher with the sangria. Refrigerate for up to 4 hours. (After this point, make sure to discard the sliced oranges or they will make the sangria bitter.)

  • Use a slice of orange and run it across the mouth of each glass. Place the glass upside down in the sugar mix and twist a couple of times back and forth. 
  • When ready to serve, add the DASANI® Sparkling water to the sangria pitcher and give it a good stir.
  • Pour over ice in the sugar rimmed glasses and enjoy!

  1. This is one of the best Sangrias I have ever made and I come from a Spanish family. It was a hit with my crazy family and they even asked me to make it again for Christmas. I’ll make it the night before and add the sparkling water when I serve it. Thank you for all the delicious inspiration Florentina.

  2. This Sangria turned out fabulous, it was the start drink at our NYE party. Simply delicious and bubbly and festive, I mixed the base in advance and had chilled cans of the Dasani water on the counter so everyone can top it off before serving. Delicious!
