Yield

Makes about 7 cups (10 to 12 servings)

Ingredients

1 bottle (750 mL) Beaujolais or dry red wine
1 cup cranberry juice cocktail
1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup cranberry-flavored liqueur (optional)

  2. Pour into glasses; add citrus slices from sangría to each glass.

Sparkling Sangría

Just before serving, tilt pitcher and slowly add 2 cups well-chilled sparkling water or club soda. Makes about 9 cups (12 to 15 servings).
