I'm not sure what I love more-- a glass of fresh juice straight from my juicer or the perfect glass of wine. Luckily, Williams-Sonoma
had the perfect solution by challenging me to create my very own Sangria recipe using fresh juice. Juicer sangria... a total 'Why Didn't I Think of This Before?!?' moment for me!
If you own or have access to a juicer than you're already at step one, if you don't you can still make this recipe by cutting up all the fruit and letting it combine with the wine in a pitcher overnight. I wanted to make this Sangria with the flavors of fall so I chose apples, pears, plums and oranges. See below for the complete recipe:
Fall Juicer Sangria
- 1 Bottle red wine (my favorite is Cupcake Vineyards' Cabernet Sauvignon)
- 2 Oranges + additional slices for garnish
- 2 Red Apples
- 1 Bartlett Pear
- 1 Bosc Pear
- 1 Red Plum
- 1 Black Plum
Chop all the fruit into chunks-- removing cores, pits and peels-- and juice. I use the Bella High-Power Juice Extractor
, which is a decent juicer for the price, however I end up having to run my pulp through several times to extract more juice out. Find more juicer options here
Combine juice in a pitcher with a bottle of red wine-- whatever your favorite varietal is. Garnish with orange slices and chunks of apple and pear. Chill overnight for THE best tasting Sangria. Cheers!
