Blood Orange Bourbon Sangria
A dark, spicy sangria made with strong Kentucky Bourbon, soaked cherries, and devious blood oranges.
- 1.5 cups bourbon
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 10 oz dark cherries, pitted (frozen if not in season)
- 750 mL Spanish red wine
- 2-3 whole blood oranges, sliced
- 1/2 cup tart cherry juice
Heat your bourbon and sugar in a saucepan, stirring on low heat until your sugar is completely dissolved. Let cool for 15-20 minutes, then add pitted cherries. Allow the cherries to marinate in the fridge for 8-12 hours.
Pour your cherries and bourbon into a glass pitcher. Add sliced blood oranges and blackberries. Add your wine and cherry juice. Let pitcher sit in the fridge for another 8-12 hours.
After letting the sangria sit, stir with a stirring rod one last time and pour into glasses filled with ice.
