So I made what I’ll loosely refer to as Sangria for Easter this year. It’s somewhere in between punch and Sangria really. It isn’t anything complex, but it came out really well. I figured I’d share in case anyone else was interested.


  • 1 1.5L “war jug” of red wine. (For some reason, it works best if the bottle has a screw top and a handle. I went with the Trader Joe’s variety of Sangria-ready wine.)
  • 1/2 a lime
  • 1/2 an apple
  • 1/2 a pear
  • 1/2 a tangerine or blood orange
  • 5-6 large strawberries
  • 1/2 cup white rum

Pour wine into pitcher, dice fruit and add into pitcher, then add rum. The hard part is letting it sit for about 4 hours. Stir once an hour, sneak a taste or two. Add (granulated) sugar if needed.
