The sangria is a lovely punch with red wine and chopped fruits that is perfect for Halloween for two reasons:
- It’s delicious - you can tweak it to be sweet or bitter according to your taste.
- You can pretend to be a very fancy vampire while drinking it.
There are many recipes and you can find the perfect one for your Halloween party!
A reasonably fancy Sangria that’s easy enough to make, but also looks impressive enough to wow guests!
The variety of ingredients makes for a rich flavour that you can customize to your liking - it includes red wine, brandy, frozen grapes and cinnamon. Here’s everything you need to know!
Simple and Fruity Sangria
This is a pretty straight forward Halloween sangria with red wine, club soda, lemonade and fruits. The special touch is you can also add fake blood to the receptacle to make it a little scarier. How, you may ask? Easy:
To make edible fake blood: simply mix corn syrup with some drops of red food colouring!
The Classic Quick Sangria
A simple sangria you can literally mix and serve in about 30 minutes, no need for waiting! What you need is:
- 1 cup of brandy
- 1 red apple thinly sliced
- 1 orange thinly sliced
- 3/4 of fresh orange juice
- 1 cup of club soda
- 2 bottles of dry red wine
To make it, simply stir together the brandy, orange, and apple slices and let it rest for about 15 minutes. Then add wine, club soda, and orange juice, and serve with ice!
Red & Black Sangria
Another sangria you can make with just a few ingredients - this one including most of the basic ingredients, but with the option of making it red or black, giving it a great unnatural look for a Halloween party! The trick is in the mixture:
- For the bright red sangria: just like any other sangria, but using rosé wine makes it easier to get the right tone.
- For the dark sangria: use two bottles of dry red wine and add dark juice like pomegranate, grape, or blueberry juice.
Pretty easy, right? Get all the ingredients and details here!
A rich and sweet sangria that will surely delight everyone. This one is also pretty simple, all you need are the right fruits and some red wine (doesn’t even have to be that expensive).
This one you have to cook for about 15 minutes until the sugar is dissolved, so be sure to read the full instructions!
Sangria del Diablo
No one can deny a cup of refreshing sweetness like this! The Seasoned Mom made this delicious recipe with a Casillero del Diablo, and although you can switch it for something else, it could be the secret ingredient.
Also, could you get more Halloween-y than a Casillero del Diablo?
Dark Purple Sangria
For a dark sangria like this one, go for the classic red wine with blackberries. The natural color of the fruit and the wine will make for a dark mixture that suits Halloween.
You can also try a lighter and fruitier wine for a brighter looking beverage, which will also change the taste. Try it out and see which you prefer!
Blood Orange Sangria
How about some blood orange sangrias for an unusual yet attractive look? The rest of the recipe is what you’d come to expect from sangrias, but the blood orange gives it a nice touch. These beauties will look great against some classic Halloween decoration with lots of orange and red!
As you can probably guess, it doesn’t take any great mystery to make it, all you need are the right ingredients.
Dark Cranberry Sangria
This cranberry sangria takes about 10 minutes to serve but it will enchant everyone! Just remember to let the mixture rest in the refrigerator the night before, so you can serve it when it’s on the perfect level of coolness!
And make sure to have an awesome skull-shaped sangria glass. That’s the whole point.
Pitch Black Sangria
A sangria as dark as the night - that’s the premise of this recipe. After adding all the ingredients, you can leave it resting for about 1 to 2 hours, and the longer it rests, the darker it will become!
Of course the bottle of Apothic Dark is the secret ingredient for this one, so try to get one if you can!
