Summer Soiree Sangria

A summer sangria is a refreshing and fruity choice for any hot summer day! This recipe comes from our friends at Mindfulness First

Servings: 8

Prepping time: 5 minutes

Chilling time: 2 hours


  • 1 bottle of fruity red wine (avoid cabernet sauvignon). All whites and rose wines work well too.
  • ½ cup of brandy
  • 1 cup of natural cranberry pomegranate juice
  • 1 cup of natural orange juice
  • 1 can of ginger ale
  • 1 cup strawberries, sliced
  • 2 oranges sliced into circles
  • 2 apples or pears, thinly sliced
  • Some blueberries or cranberries
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 Tbsp of coconut or brown sugar
  • Rosemary sprigs or star anise for garnish


  1. Add all the fruit and coconut or sugar into a bowl or large pitcher and muddle it with a wooden spoon. Then pour in everything else.
  2. Add it all into a punch bowl. Allow it to refrigerate for two hours. If you need to serve immediately, throw in some fresh ice cubes on top. Enjoy every sip!


Green Living Magazine staff member Diane Doster enjoyed a wonderful day at Mindfulness First’s event earlier in June. Aleyda Batarse of The Dish on Healthy joined the event and demonstrated her cooking methods.
