Whip up a batch of this flavorful (no added sugar) sangria for your next get-together—it’s a party in a pitcher! You can either buy store-bought pomegranate juice and a separate package of seeds, or purchase a whole pomegranate and dissect; it will produce up to 2 cups of seeds. As for the wine? I tend to make sangria with Pinot Noir, since it contributes a light, sweet and smooth taste. Pro tip: I typically prep this recipe a day beforehand (minus the sparkling water) and store it in the fridge overnight to let the flavors mingle.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 12 cups
Ingredients:
  • • 1 orange, sliced
  • • 1 red apple, sliced
  • • 3 cups strawberries, sliced
  • • ½ cup pomegranate seeds, plus more for garnish (optional)
  • • 1 bottle (750 ml) red table wine (like Pinot Noir)
  • • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • • ½ to 1 cup chilled sparkling water, plain or pomegranate-flavored
Preparation:

Place the orange, apple, strawberries, and pomegranate seeds in a large pitcher. Add the wine and pomegranate juice. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight (so the fruit has time to incorporate all the delicious juice and wine flavor). When you’re ready to serve, pour into glasses and top each glass off with a splash of sparkling water and a sprinkling of pomegranate seeds, if desired. Stir and enjoy.
