Blood Orange Sangria

There’s really nothing more gorgeous than a glass of sangria. It’s an easy recipe to make and you can alter it as needed, depending on what’s in season. Since February is height citrus season, it’s the perfect time to combine refreshing white wine with fresh squeezed blood oranges.  I mean, does it get any better?

I, Alex, will be honest, I can find almost any excuse to enjoy blood oranges this time of year.  Basically, I’m addicted. Their beautiful pinkish, ruby color is so eye-catching that it lends a nice hue to almost any dish. I toss a few slices into yogurt, oatmeal, salads and even a glass of ice water for an extra pop of color.  You can never have too much!

Blood Orange Sangria

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces Freshly squeeze blood oranges
  • 1 Bottle of pinot grigio (or any other light white wine)
  • 1 ounce Simple syrup
  • 1/3 cup Triple sec
  • 1/2 cup Club soda
  • Sliced blood oranges, for serving

Instructions

  • In a large pitcher, combine the wine, blood orange juice, simple syrup, triple sec and club soda. Stir well to combine. 
  • To serve, fill each glass with a few ice cubes (or crushed ice, my favorite), and pour the sangria in. Garnish with a few slices of blood oranges. 

To offset the tart taste in this recipe, I’ve added in a small amount of simple syrup. I dislike sangria that’s too cloying, so start with a modest amount and add more if needed. You can also sub in honey or agave, if preferred. One of my favorite parts of this recipe is that it is so easy to tweak to your tastes!
