Cranberry Sangria

Cranberries are so good for you- They’re a SUPERFOOD! They are low calorie, have tons of vitamin C and filled with fiber, so you should eat a lot of them!

Here are a couple of more cranberry recipes I have that have cranberries because you can’t have enough of them during the holidays!

This cranberry sangria is the BEST!! I love that this can be made before the guests arrive.

You can serve sangria in any kind of glass, but I like wine glasses. You would normally serve it in a bigger glass because many sangrias have chucks of fruit in it.

I have several different kinds of wine glasses. I love the big kind for red wine.

However, I like these stemless wine glasses when I’m not sitting down at the table. They are a little more sturdy and they’re hard to knock over. These are the exact ones I have from Amazon and they are a FANTASTIC price!

This recipe doesn’t call for orange slices, but you could add them in if you were putting this is a pitcher. The cranberries you see in the photo are raw so you wouldn’t want to eat them. They just look pretty.

Raw cranberries have a very strong taste!
