Single-Serve Mixed Berry Sangria

I know, I know – sangria, by nature, is a punch. So making one glass of sangria is like making enough dough for just one chocolate chip cookie, or enough pizza for one slice; it doesn't make much sense.


But if you're anything like me, then you've craved a glass of sangria a time or two (or a hundred) in your life. Bold wine sweetened by fresh fruit, simple syrup and brandy or liqueur is a tasty treat that shouldn't just be reserved for Spanish restaurants and outdoor parties. Nor should it be limited to a pitcher-only concoction.

Since making an entire batch of sangria is a little unnecessary (and dangerous, if you have no self-control) for one person, I decided to come up with a simple recipe you can mix yourself for just one glass of sangria. 

Measuring out a single serving of red wine was made a million times easier thanks to Stack Wine, a literal stack of four single-serving shatterproof cups of wine. The four servings are the equivalent to a bottle, so it's super easy to enjoy an accurate serving, especially if you just want one (or two) glasses of wine without opening an entire bottle. 

 

 

 

The beauty of sangria is that there are a million different recipes and ways to make it, but for the purposes of this delicious single-serving recipe, I kept it pretty simple. I added some frozen mixed berries (shout-out to the Trader Joe's frozen fruit section!), chopped apple slices, a couple lemon and blood orange slices, and Chambord black raspberry liqueur. Instead of simple syrup or agave, I added another little bit of sweetness with some raspberry seltzer. Just a little bit to add some effervescence. 

Now if you're saying to yourself "but there are two cups of wine in your photos!" then congratulations, you're very observant. The recipe below is for just one glass, but you can easily double the recipe to enjoy yourself or with a pal. Because even though I'm all about treating yourself to a glass or two of something boozy, no one likes drinking alone. 

Tip: If you want to let the fruit marinate in the wine a little bit, put all of your ingredients in a mason jar, seal with a lid, and store in the fridge for up to a few hours.

  • 6 ounces of dry red wine (I used Stack Wine Cabernet Sauvignon)
