Easy Single-Serving Sangria

This easy Single-Serving Sangria recipe is the perfect cocktail all spring and summer long. That’s why we call it Swimming Pool Sangria! It’s mixed simply right in the wine glass.

How to mix up a delicious single serving sangria:

I use a medium-bodied red blend or a fruit-forward Zinfandel to make this cocktail, because it doesn’t have the benefit of hanging out in a pitcher with a bunch of fruit like traditional sangrias do. Merlot would also work well here. The flavors of both Merlot and Zinfandel blend well in recipes without fading into the background. You’ll find the same wine selections in my Red Wine Hot Chocolate recipe, which I think you should definitely make in colder months. Just saying.

You’ll notice I’m not adding any additional liquor beyond the Grand Marnier. That’s for two reasons: I like the taste of wine and I’m not trying to get gassed-out-of-my-mind on two of these. I’ve already told you my friends and I drink them in swimming pool. Safety first.

Could you use Triple Sec or another orange liqueur? Sure, although I think Grand Marnier adds a little something more since it’s cognac-based. You can also squeeze all the juice of the orange in the glass and not throw the slice in. When I have lots of fresh berries, that’s usually what I do.

Give this single-serving sangria a try, and mix a glassful up for a friend too, swimming optional.

Then try these other awesomely easy wine cocktails: Cranberry Rosé (3 ingredients!), Pineapple Rosemary Crush, & this Raspberry Port Sparkler on my friend Meg’s website. I’ve written a few wine cocktail recipes for California Wines over the years, and Meg took the photos. Best. Collaboration. Ever.

Recipe Summary

  • 1 (750 milliliter) bottle red wine
  • ½ cup rum
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 orange, sliced in rounds
  • 1 lime, sliced
  • 1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1 apple, cored and sliced
  • 9 whole cloves
  • 1 liter lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage

In a large jar or pitcher combine wine and rum with sliced lemon, orange, lime, and strawberry. Push cloves into apples slices and add to mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight (the longer the better).

To serve, pour a tall glass half-full of wine mixture. Fill the rest of the glass with soda and stir gently. Remove cloves from apple slices and garnish drinks by spooning some marinated fruit into glass.

Deliciously Fruity Sangria Recipe

Ooh you want to talk about a good Thyme! This Deliciously Fruity Sangria Recipe will get you there. All you need is about 5 minutes and 5 ingredients. You can make it ahead and chill or make it when you need it and serve it over ice.

I recently had my girls over for brunch and made this super easy Strawberry French Toast Casserole. It was oh so good with a smooth custard and the hint of strawberries. I needed a drink that would pair well with this dish. I know mimosas are the traditional drink for breakfast but since it was brunch, I wanted to jazz it up. Why not have your drink and eat it too?! Wine infused fruit is the way I did that.

My step dad loves to make wine so it was only fitting for him to send along a bottle of homemade wine with my mom. Fruit was already on my brunch menu so why not pair the two. All I needed was a few more ingredients and the choice of drink was decided….Sangria!

No shortage of taste testers here. Say HI to my good friend and my mom. I love them and they loved this super easy Deliciously Fruity Sangria Recipe. What’s not to love about only 5 ingredients?

Keep in mind you don’t have to use homemade wine. You pick out a red wine you love to drink. It doesn’t have to be super expensive either. The fruit you decide to use will add those flavor notes you want in your drink.

By the way, I’m in love with the Thyme & Table products. They made my brunch super classy. Guess what. You can finds these products at Walmart. You don’t have to spend a fortune to make it look pretty.

Clean Wines

If you&rsquore wondering what clean wine is, it&rsquos basically made from organically, biodynamically, or sustainably farmed grapes. It has no added sugar or unnecessary additives, and minimal sulfites. I not only feel fancy when holding a glass, but I also feel better knowing I&rsquom not putting a ton of harmful chemicals in my body.

Since I try to incorporate healthy alternatives in other parts of my diet, I figured making sure my wine is clean and organic would be a smart move. Thrive Market wines are sourced for low environmental impact, handpicked for amazing taste, and is affordably priced.

My Thrive Market wine order came with 6 organic wines pictured below:

  • Chateau du Cedre Malbec Cahors France 2015
  • Bodegas Familia Bastida Cibolo Monastrell Spain 2016
  • Costalarbol Red Blend Rioja Spain 2017
  • Tour Des Gendres Bergerac Sec Blanc France 2017
  • Domaine Grand Ribe Cotes Du Rhone France 2017
  • Costanino Arin Grillo Italy 2017

Great thing is that Thrive Market has a wide selection of organic wines. You can check out their full selection of clean wines.

Let&rsquos make some sangria!

Our first step is to mix the berries and sugar and let them sit for a while. Sugar won&rsquot dissolve well in the cold liquids, so we want to give everything time to get juicy so the sugar will be liquid. Mix them gently together and let them sit at room temperature for 15-45 minutes until the sugar is mostly dissolved.

How Long Does Sangria Last?

I’m one of those people who often has an open bottle of red wine sitting on the counter for a week. I love to end my day snuggled up on the couch with a glass of red wine and a good book. An open bottle of wine can last up to a week or so. However, sangria has a shorter shelf-life.

Because you’ve added fresh fruits, I recommend finishing up your pitcher of red sangria after 2-3 days. I’ve found that while the drink itself will remain drinkable, the fruit starts to disintegrate. After a few days, it gets mushy and much less appealing. I HIGHLY doubt you’ll have trouble finishing this pitcher though, it’s so yummy!
