Description

This lively Triple Berry & Ancho Chile Sangria is like no other!  It’s fruity with a bit of warmth from the Ancho Chile Liqueur and just a hint of spice from a cinnamon stick.  Plus, we added three types of berries.  Our idea of the perfect way to fulfill a daily fruit serving!  


Scale

Ingredients

750 ml bottle dry red wine (I used Grenache)

1/3 cup Ancho Chile Liqueur

Four slices of orange quartered ( I used a Cara Cara orange)

1 cup sliced strawberries

1/2 cup blackberries

1/4 cup blueberries

One cinnamon stick (about 3″)

Club soda, for topping glasses


Instructions

Place quartered orange slices, strawberries, blueberries and blackberries in a large glass pitcher. Place the cinnamon stick on top.  Pour Ancho Chile Liqueur and red wine on top of the fruit.  Using a bar spoon, or a long-handled stirring utensil combine the ingredients.  Chill in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours.  When ready to serve, give the sangria a quick stir and divide among four glasses and top each with a splash of club soda, if desired.  Toast with your friends and enjoy!


Notes

You can use any dry red wine that you like. We chose Grenache because it tends to be a bit fruitier.  It has the perfect flavor profile for this sangria! No need to splurge on an expensive bottle of wine. Around the $10 price range will get you an excellent wine for this recipe!

If storing the sangria for longer than 8 hours, you may want to use a pair of tongs and remove the cinnamon stick.  I find the cinnamon flavor to be a bit overwhelming if left in the pitcher too long. If you don’t mind a more pronounced cinnamon flavor then no worries, leave it in!

You can find the Ancho Chile Liqueur at well-stocked liquor agencies.
