Quick Sangria Recipe for Your Holiday Party

If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter you may have seen that I was the hostess at this year’s Blogalicious Weekend. It was such a great conference and I was honored to be a part of it (check out my Instagram feed for some highlights)! If you are a blogger, social media influencer or someone considering becoming one of the two you should definitely consider attending next year!

But let’s get back to the topic at hand. Many of you know that I love sangria. I mean, I have my own recipe that takes two weeks to make (you early subscribers of The Vyne may have received my recipe in your email in an early issue), and I always love finding new great-tasting sangria recipes that are faster and easier to make. You may have seen this one I shared a while back which is a quicker version of my two week sangria. However, while at Blogalicious Weekend I discovered a ready-made sangria that was really good. It’s Yellow Tail’s sangria. It is mildly sweet, a little tart with notes of citrus. I found it really easy to drink which made me think, what if I spruced it up with some fresh fruit and put it in a nice pitcher for a party? So I created this recipe as a yummy party beverage that people won’t think came from a bottle.

Here’s the quick and easy recipe for you to make on Thanksgiving or your upcoming holiday party:


2-5 bottles of Yellow Tail Sangria

1 red apple cut into cubes (skin on avoiding core)

1 green apple cut into cubes (skin on avoiding core)

1 orange sliced in rounds, then in half

1 small container of fresh blueberries

Great looking glass pitcher (I like this Pino IVV Pitcher from Crate and Barrel and this Casa Recycled Glass pitcher from Pottery Barn)



Chill bottles of sangria before making, if possible. Put cut fruit and blueberries at the bottom of the pitcher. Pour enough bottles of sangria to fill pitcher. Serve on the rocks. As the pitcher gets low, just fill with more bottled sangria (Not in front of your guests, of course. You want them to think you put in more time and effort).
