I celebrated my first Thanksgiving potluck this year at Patrick’s again. It was crazy to see everyone in one location exactly one year later. Some who’ve graduated and moved on to bigger and better things and some who are still trucking through college (i.e. me). Patrick made this amazing showstopping container of red wine sangria filled with every fruit possible. Recipe is courtesy of Bobby Flay.

Red Wine Sangria

The beauty of the basic Sangria recipe is that it is as delicious as it is easy, and it only gets better as you spice it up with your own additions!

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 0 hours
  • Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 2 bottles red Spanish table wine
  • 1 cup brandy
  • 1/2 cup triple sec
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1/2 cup simple syrup, or more to taste (equal parts sugar and water, heated until sugar dissolves, cooled)
  • Orange slices
  • Apple slices
  • Blackberries
  • Pomegranate seeds


  1. Mix all ingredients together.
  2. Allow to stand in a tightly sealed container or pitcher for at least 24 hours in the refrigerator before serving.


  • Serving Size: 8 servings

To make your holiday parties/dinners less stressful, serve the sangria in a beverage dispenser. That way you don’t have to go around refilling peoples drinks throughout the night. Patrick got his drink dispenser from Amazon.com. And the best thing? It fits in the refrigerator. So if you make it the night before, you only have to take it out before the guests arrive and put it on the serving table.
