Cherry Sangria Recipe // A Well Crafted Party

It’s Saturday Spirits again! Woohoo. This is quickly becoming my favorite series on the blog yet. Though, I do have some fun week long series coming up for the blog including a week long look at Favorite Family Recipes and another Picnic Week series!

This week I’m sharing a Sweet & Tart sangria recipe that makes for a beautiful bright pink beverage. Now, this is VERY cherry and VERY sweet & tart. But, it was perfect for a hot afternoon with a grilled dinner.

Cherry Sangria Recipe

Makes approximately six 8oz glasses of sangria. Can be served chilled or over ice.


  • 1 bottle of Bloom Riesling (the Bloom Moscato  or any sweet riesling or moscato would also work really well!)
  • 1 cup of Cherry Juice (I got mine from Trader Joes)
  • 2-3 cups of pitted FRESH cherries. We used this trick to pit our cherries and it worked great!
  • 1 cup sweet vermouth
  • 1 cup orange juice


  1. Pit your cherries and put into a pitcher with 1 cup orange juice, 1 cup sweet vermouth, and 1 cup cherry juice
  2. Let sit in fridge for 1-2 hours
  3. Pour chilled riesling or moscato into chilled, and soaked cherry concoction that you have had in your fridge.
  4. Serve over ice or just chilled! Be prepared to pucker and smile!

      Hahaha… yep! Man, everytime I go to the store and see all the gorgeous cherries I want to buy them all. I’m like “cherry season is short. can’t get them this cheap all year. buy ALL the cherries!”
