Most sangrias are far too sweet, but this recipe is the perfect balance of fresh citrus, crisp wine, and a mellow hint of ginger at the end. The spiced rum and ginger syrup complement each other perfectly, making this a true crowd-pleaser for any party.

  1. To make the syrup, pour the water into a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in the sugar until dissolved. Peel and roughly chop the ginger, add it to the saucepan, and allow to simmer in the sugar syrup for 15 minutes. Pour the mixture into a blender and pulse to further incorporate the ginger. Allow to sit for 5–10 minutes, then strain the solids from the syrup.
  2. To make the sangria, combine the wine, rum, 6oz of the ginger syrup, and citrus juices in a large pitcher. Add ice and stir to combine. Garnish with fresh mint sprigs and orange slices, if desired.


Adding a small amount of sparkling water to a glass of this sangria makes it extra-refreshing and fun!

      That’s some beautiful sangria! Haven’t seen it so orange before but would love to give it a try. Pinned!

      Delicious, but mine was not this pretty color. It was more brown because of the spiced rum.
