For me, a delicious drink and relaxation go hand-in-hand. And when the holidays come around, I look for recipes with a festive twist that can easily be made for friends and family. This Cranberry Orange Sangria fits the bill perfectly. In fact, I love it just as much as the Pomegranate Lemonade Spritzer I created this past summer. If you’re looking for a crowd-pleaser this holiday, this beautiful, delicious drink is for you (and perfect for New Year’s!).
As I mentioned, I love this sangria recipe because it’s so simple. You don’t need to run to the store and buy a bunch of ingredients. Just a few will do the trick! Keep them on-hand and in just a few minutes you can have delicious drinks for any last-minute holiday guests who might pop by. Plus, Cranberry Orange Sangria sounds like it was made for the holidays, doesn’t it?
I make this recipe with Florida’s Natural Brand® Orange Juice. It’s easy to keep on hand because adults and kids love it! (That’s if I can get to it before the kids drink it all.) It’s a family favorite of ours, because Florida’s Natural is made from one simple ingredient – Florida oranges – with no added sugars or preservatives. You can even make festive drinks for the kids using orange juice, cranberry juice and sparkling water or ginger ale.
So, put these ingredients on your shopping list, pour into a glass, and ENJOY!

I think it’s safe to say that anyone can pull this drink off. Go ahead and give it a try! This is the ideal drink for the winter months, when you just want to stay warm and cozy in your house! But of course, it can be enjoyed year round.
As you can see, this drink is so pretty and delicious! Sit back and relax because you know you are in good hands with this Cranberry Orange Sangria.
