Make any party special with sparkling sangria. It’s easy to make a lot of this to serve to guests from a pitcher and it can be made in advance.



  • Ice cubes
  • 40 frozen cranberries
  • 1 medium orange (or 2 clementines)
  • 1/2 of a lemon
  • 1 bottle of sparkling wine


  1. Put the cranberries in a medium sized bowl and cover with hot tap water to defrost them.
  2. Once defrosted, drain them and then chop them up. If any juice accumulates on the cutting board try to save it to add to the sangria.
  3. Similarly, roughly chop the orange and the lemon also saving up any of the juices that squirt out onto your cutting board.
  4. Fill a 1 and 1/2 liter (50 ounce) pitcher 1/3 full of ice.
  5. Add the cranberries, orange, and lemon along with any of the accumulated juice.
  6. Pour in the bubbly.
  7. Store in the fridge for up to 30 minutes before serving.
  8. I like to serve this sangria in Champagne flutes but you can use regular wine glasses or martini glasses.
