Spiced Sangria

This Spiced Sangria is perfect for entertaining and can be adapted with any of your favorite River Run Olive Oil Co. balsamic vinegars. We like it with a dark balsamic vinegar, like Mission Fig. However, if you’d like to use a white balsamic, like peach, try swapping the apples for peaches and nectarines!

Serves 8

1 750 ml bottle of red wine
1/4 cup of River Run Mission Fig Balsamic Vinegar
10 cinnamon sticks
1 orange, sliced
1 apple, cored and thinly sliced
1 cup ginger ale

Add two of the cinnamon sticks, apples and oranges to a large pitcher. Add the wine and balsamic vinegar and let steep at least four hours or overnight. To serve, add the ginger ale and stir. Fill the pitcher with ice. Pour the sangria into glasses filled with ice and garnish with a cinnamon stick.

  • Non-Alcoholic Version: You can easily make this a non-alcoholic sangria by replacing the wine with equal parts cranberry juice and ginger ale.
