The Best and Last Sangria Recipe You’ll Ever Need

Listen. Take the day off and make this.

The best and last sangria recipe you will ever need!

Sometimes Jeremy and I find ourselves with an overabundance of fruit that is… near death. And I am like, “SAVE ALL THE FRUIT!”

Fruit for the best sangria recipe!

The first thought that occurs is a no brainer. Fruit salad. Except my fruit salad might look a little different than the world’s fruit salad.

Because it has Brandy and Grand Marnier in it.

The best, boozy sangria recipe!

And red wine. (Note: these bottles were $5 each from Whole Foods. I like to choose an inexpensive red table wine for my fruit salad!)

The best sangria recipe with red wine!

Some people call this Sangria. That’s cool too.

The Best and Last Sangria Recipe You’ll Ever Need

You can basically use whatever fruit you have on hand. We had the usual suspects, apples and oranges and a heaping basket of blackberries!

Blackberries for the best sangria recipe!

But you can also use pears or raspberries.

I adapted this recipe from the Food Network and tweaked it for my taste. It calls for 1/2 cup simple syrup and I do not add that much. In fact, sometimes I make this without any simple syrup depending on how ripe my fruit is and how long I can allow this to sit (so it can pull the sugars from the fruit).

If I am making it for a few hours later I start with a 1/4 cup of simple syrup. Which is equal parts sugar and equal parts water dissolved. I do this over a stove and it comes together quite quickly.

BUT, I do not use white sugar. I use coconut sugar OR honey. Equal parts. It’s perfect.

This recipe is so easy because you just throw everything into a pitcher.

It’s a party.

Fresh fruit for the best sangria recipe!

When I call my friends and ask if they want to come over for fresh fruit salad, they always come running.

Crowd pleaser!! The best sangria recipe!

I also love this sangria as a companion while reading. And this book, this is my jam right now! As is anything by Ruth Reichl.

For all your parties! The best sangria recipe <3

Or just for getting some last minutes details of the day wrapped up.
