Easy Winter Citrus Sangria

winter citrus sangria

If you’re a fellow citrus lover, winter may be one of your favorite times of the year for in-season fruits. Although winter is by far my least favorite season, any drink with grapefruit in it has my vote. I must admit, I have been known to order the “pinky orangish” drinks just based off their color. I am also a huge fan of sangria, so when I found this winter citrus sangria recipe I knew I would have to adapt it and make it my own!

While shopping at my local market for ingredients, I decided to pick a few different citrus-flavored fruits, so that the sangria would have a full flavor profile. The original recipe did not call for oranges but I chose to add blood oranges because of their flavor and deep interior color… they look as good as they taste!
