A cheery and bright red wine sangria filled with strawberry and pomegranate.
- 1 lb strawberries, sliced plus more for garnish
- arils (the seeds) from 1 pomegranate
- 2 (750ml) bottles red wine*
- 2 cups pomegranate juice*
- club soda, to taste
- optional: granulated sugar, honey, or agave to sweeten
- Place the sliced strawberries and arils in a large pitcher. Add wine and pomegranate juice. Allow to sit in the refrigerator for 6 – 24 hours. Taste; if you’d like it to be sweeter, add 1-2 Tablespoons granulated sugar, honey, or agave.
- Pour the sangria with fruit into glasses and add a splash of club soda to each glass (this unsweetened fizz is excellent with the sangria!). Garnish with a strawberry, if desired. Feel free to add ice to your glasses of sangria. Do not add ice directly to the pitcher – this waters the sangria down. Which, clearly, we don’t want! Cheers.
- Brandy: Traditional sangria often includes brandy, but I did not care for its addition in this sangria. If you’d like to add some, go ahead.
- Red Wine: Use your favorite red wine. I like to use Pinot Noir or a Spanish red wine like Tempranillo. I prefer red wine in this sangria. However, if white wine is your favorite, that’s a great option too. Keep in mind that a sweeter white wine, such as Reisling, may make the sangria a little too sweet.
- Pomegranate Juice: The most easily available pom juice is POM Wonderful pomegranate juice; I see it all the time in grocery stores. I know that Ocean Spray makes a cranberry pomegranate juice which would be just as tasty
