December 23, 2019: Holiday Sangria Recipe

In today’s blog post I am sharing with you my favourite holiday white wine sangria recipe. This sangria is always a huge hit and has been a go-to of mine this past year (I’ve made it three times already), since my aunt-in-law had first passed on the recipe to me.

Here it is…

(drumroll please)

Holiday Sangria 


– 2 oranges, sliced

– 2 bottles dry white wine (Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay)

– 1 c white grape juice

– 1/2c sugar (white, brown, or sub ~1/3c maple syrup)

– 1 1/2 c fresh cranberries

– 5 sprigs of fresh rosemary + more for garnish

– ice (optional, cubed or crushed)


Makes one large pitcher



1) Cook grape juice, sugar, and 2c wine on Medium Heat.

2) Bring to a boil, then add cranberries and cook for 30 seconds until they pop.

3) Strain cranberries, reserving the wine syrup.

4) In a pitcher, combine the remaining wine, blanched cranberries, orange slices, and rosemary. Chill for an hour.

5) Add cooled wine syrup last.

6) Add ice if desired.

Optional- You can use additional rosemary sprigs dipped in wine syrup reserve and rolled in white sugar, for show effect.
