Winter Sangria

I am not a huge fan of a classic Sangria as it's often just too sweet, this is a great winter alternative. Served ice cold, but warm with spice, lightly fruity with a good hint of citrus and not too sweet. Its makes a great change to mulled wine for when you have friends over during the holidays, as you can mix up a few jugs in the morning and your good to go when they arrive. Be warned it's very Moorish!



1 bottle of red wine (vegan)

2 cinnamon sticks

6 cloves

The seeds from half a pomegranate

1 I lemon sliced thinly

1 lime thinly sliced

Handful of cranberries (optional)

¼ cup brandy

¼ cup Pimms winter or maple syrup/agave nectar/date syrup/caster sugar.

To finish

2 330ml tins of ginger beer or lemonade/Fanta but I like the ginger hit

Cinnamon Sticks to use as stirrers (optional)

Dried orange slices to garnish or a slice of clementine.


  1. Add all the ingredients for the sangria to a jug and stir to combine.
  2. Place in the fridge for at least an hour, the longer you leave it the better it will taste as the flavours will infuse. You can drink immediately if you can't wait, but it won't taste as good.
  3. When you're ready to serve fill glasses with ice a cinnamon stick and slice of orange or clementine. Fill half way with the sangria and add about ½ a cup of ginger.
