Pomegranate Vanilla Sangria

Yield: serves 4? (depends on how much you drink!)

Total Time: 15 minutes


1 large navel orange, sliced
1 large apple, chopped
1 large pear, chopped
the arils of 1 pomegranate
2 cinnamon sticks
2 vanilla beans
1 1/2 bottles of red wine (I bought a Spanish red wine)
2 cups of sparkling pomegranate soda (bought mine at Trader Joe’s)
1/2 cup brandy
1/2 cup sugar (possibly more depending on your wine)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract


Add orange slices, apples, pears, cinnamon sticks and pomegranate arils to the bottom of a big pitcher. Pour wine, pomegranate juice/soda, brandy, sugar and vanilla extract over top. Scrape vanilla beans out of their pods and add to the mix. Then throw the entire empty vanilla beans in. Mix with a giant spoon to really combine everything.

Place in the fridge for about 1 hour before serving. Taste to determine if you’d like more sugar, and if so – add it! Spoon some of the fruit into glasses before pouring, then add ice and sangria on top.

Note: If you can’t find the pomegranate soda, I would sub 1 1/2 cups of pomegranate juice + 1/2 cup ginger ale or club soda. Taste before adding your sugar in case it is super sweet.

    This sangria is amazing! I made it for my boyfriend this weekend; he said that it was the best sangria ever and had several glasses. It is amazing and the leftover sangria was even better the next night. Thanks for the great recipe!

    Jessica! I have a question for you…what can you substitute if you don’t have access to Sparkling Pomegranate Soda?

    I have quite the soft spot for sangria and this one looks pretty darn good to me. I’ll have to see if I can find that pomegranate soda at TJs!

    I found pomegranate soda at the Target SuperCenter in the grocery section. My trouble came with finding a container to mix this up in and transport to a party. Any ideas?

      I bought this plastic Tupperware pitcher from walmart and it came with a sealed lid. It would work perfectly.

    Jessica, you really should warn people that if they start drinking this sangria at 3 p.m. on the deck of their cabin until it is gone (disclaimer:there were 4 of us and we did have snacks to soak up some of the alcohol), they will want to go to bed at 6:30 p.m. I’m thinking maybe the altitude??? Or maybe just the deliciousness of the sangria. I’m just sayin.

      Um. I love this.

    Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start
    my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
    something unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Thanks for this great holiday drink! It was a hit at our Christmas dinner! We doubled the recipe and it easily served approximately 15 adults. We used a pomegranate flavored sparkling water and it was just delicious. Happy Holidays to All.
