Cranberry Sangria


  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 4 cranberry-flavored tea bags
  • 4 slices fresh lemon
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 (750 mL) bottles of white wine
  • 4 apples, cored and cut into chunks
  • 1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
  • 2 fluid ounces apple brandy

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: Place the sugar, tea bags, lemon slices, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and water into a saucepan, and stir until the sugar has dissolved.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes.  Remove from heat and let mixture cool.  Strain out and discard the spices, lemon, and tea bags.

Step 2: Pour the white wine into a large jar or covered container, and mix with the tea mixture.  Stir in apples and cranberries; mix in the apple brandy.  Chill in refrigerator 24 to 48 hours.  Serve cold.

Tip: For a kid-friendly version, use white grape juice in place of the wine and a 1/4 cup of apple juice as the “kick!”
