Is there any better party drink than sangria? I don’t think so. It’s beautiful, you can use cheap wine and no one minds, and it’s easy to switch it up with the seasons. This recipe has apples and winter spices, but you could easily change the fruits with the season.
A lot of sangria recipes I’ve seen in the past call for white sugar and ginger ale. My recipe uses no refined sugar and since it is made with kombucha, it’s probiotic to boot! It has the perfect blend of sweetness from the orange juice and kombucha with a little tang from the wine.
The really cool thing about this recipe is that you don’t have to use anything to measure other than your mason jar! The lines on the side do all the work for you.
- 2 cups Red Wine (around half a bottle)
- 4 oz Brandy
- 1 cup Kombucha (we used kombucha that had some 100% cranberry juice added during the 2nd fermentation. It was divine)
- An orange
- An apple
- A cinnamon stick
- Whole cloves
- Combine the first four ingredients in a quart-sized mason jar. Cut the orange into wedges and squeeze the juice into the jar. Just use your hands. Place the orange wedges in the jar. Slice the apple and place as many slices as will fit into the jar along with the spices. Refrigerate overnight and serve chilled.
- To give as a hostess gift, tie it with a pretty ribbon or some twine and add a cinnamon stick and a sprig of rosemary. Bask in your fabulousness.
