Triple Berry & Ancho Chile Sangria


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!  



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


  • 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!


  • 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.
