Red Blood Orange Sangria
Red Blood Orange Sangria—the perfectly festive wintertime drink to make its appearance on your holiday table all the way into the new year!
- 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
- 3 tbsp granulated sugar for rimming glasses (optional)
Juice 5 of the blood oranges and strain the juice.
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.)
On a small plate, mix together the granulated sugar and orange zest.
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!
