Blood Orange White Wine Sangria - A Life Unfolding

Blood Orange White Wine Sangria

Hello and welcome!

I have the most delicious summer White Wine Sangria recipe to share with you today. Although this recipe uses white wine (which is my favorite), the addition of bourbon and cinnamon puts a warm, sultry spin on this sangria that seems perfect for warm summer nights.

I love a recipe that is easy to make and this one is definitely easy! I’ve used an inexpensive wine (under $10.00) in this Sangria because…well it’s Sangria!!! Blood oranges are the star here but I have tried this with naval oranges and they make a lovely sangria also.

Instructions:

 

  1. Combine all ingredients into a large pitcher, and stir well.
  2. Taste! If the recipe is too tart, you can add simple syrup to add sweetness. I like this one.
  3. Let set for approximately 2 hours (the longer, the better), allowing the flavors to meld together.
  4. Serve over ice. Garnish with Blood Oranges and Rosemary Sprigs

    I have made a few sangrias and really have started loving them. I’m not a huge wine drinker so having more of that fruity taste is great. So good for a group too.
