I love making my own homemade sangria mixtures. Here’s an antioxidant-rich red wine sangria recipe that has been my absolute favorite to unwind with.
How to Make Red Wine Sangria
- Combine the ingredients. It really pays to have freshly pressed pomegranate juice for this recipe. Add that and some honey in a large pitcher (large enough to fit your wine in too) and stir well. Add in the red wine and the fresh blueberries and strawberries.
- Stir. Stir the drink mixture well, making sure everything is thoroughly combined.
- Refrigerate. Cover the pitcher with plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator for a minimum of one hour.
- Finish it off. Top the sangria with chilled sparkling water.
- Serve. Serve over ice.
Is Red Wine Sangria Healthy?
When enjoyed in moderation, sangria can be quite a healthy drink option. With this particular sangria recipe, you’re getting plenty of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory compounds, vitamins, and minerals.
I always emphasize nutritious ingredients above all, everything in this recipe serves its purpose.
Most sangria recipes will provide you with similar benefits since they tend to follow the same structure of mixing red wine with a variety of different types of fruit. So long as you stay away from simple syrups and artificial fruit extracts, you should be fine.
How Long Does Sangria Keep in the Refrigerator?
The length of time that homemade sangria will last in the fridge will typically depend on the exact ingredients that go into making it. On average though, most sangria mixtures tend to last for about 5 days when kept in the fridge.
What’s the Best Way to Store Sangria?
The best way to store this red wine sangria is by keeping it in either a pitcher covered with plastic wrap or in sealed mason jars.
You’re also going to want to make sure that you always keep sangria stored in the fridge because the colder temperature will help to slow down the souring of the wine, while also keeping your fruit fresh.
