It’s Sangria Sunday! Connect with friends by hosting a Sangria Brunch. We have a Summer Sangria Punch recipe and tips to make it easy breezy fun.
Red Wine Sangria Recipe with Pomegranate Juice
This recipe makes a pretty pitcher of sangria, or double the recipe for a summer sangria punch. (This recipe is so easy to double – or triple.)
Serve in a punch bowl garnished with strawberries, orange slices and mint leaves or rosemary sprigs.
- ¼ cup sugar
- ¼ cup water
- 1 bottle red dry table wine
- ½ cup brandy
- 1 cup pomegranate juice
- 1 whole apple, sliced
- 1 whole orange, sliced
- 1 cup strawberries, sliced
- fresh mint leaves
- Add sugar and water to a small saucepan. Over medium high heat bring the mixture to a boil. Cook until sugar is fully dissolved. Allow to cool.
- Slice strawberries (save whole strawberries with leaves as garnish.) Slice orange into small wedges, saving several whole slices as garnish for pitcher or punchbowl.
- Add red wine, brandy, pomegranate juice, apples, oranges, and strawberries to a large pitcher.
- Add in cooled simple syrup and stir. (The sangria will get sweeter after it sets and the fruit has time to infuse with the wine.)
- Refrigerate for at least 2 hours - or for best results overnight. Taste test after it sets.
- Serve with reserved orange slices and strawberries on glass or in bowls on the side. Optional: serve with mint leaves, or rosemary spring in punchbowl.
For best results, refrigerate overnight so fruit can infuse the red wine.
Substitute pomegranate juice for your favorite juice, and add your favorite fruit so create a signature sangria.

Tips for a Sangria Brunch
4 ways to serve the Sangria:
- Serve it by the glass, garnished exactly as you want so it is the belle of the ball.
- Have a punchbowl centerpiece, as pretty as a picture. Everyone can serve themselves but it’s still an elegant affair.
- For a casual serve-yourself brunch have a pitcher at the end of a breakfast buffet.
- For many guests, set up a Sangria Bar at the opposite end of the room to the buffet table so people getting another drink won’t have to wait in the food line.
This is a sweet sangria recipe, so it goes well with most brunch foods. See all of our breakfast buffet ideas from easy breezy to elegant.
