Holiday frozen Sangria is a captivating sweet and tart and wonderful and colorful festive slushy punch recipe. Enjoy it during winter parties or throughout the year! Tips are included to get the right flavor and consistency! {Gluten-Free} 


  • 3 1/24 cups frozen fruit
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1/3 cup orange liqueur
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • Sweetener, to taste (See Notes)


  1. In a high-spreed blender, add the red wine, frozen fruit, frozen mandarin oranges, orange liqueur, lime juice, and sweetener. Blend on a LOW to MEDIUM setting so the ingredients are pulled together slowly into a sorbet-like, frozen treat consistency. Use a tamper, if your blender comes with one, to gently push the frozen fruit through the blender’s blades.
  2. If needed, add another 1/2 – 1 cup frozen fruit to thicken the sangria.
  3. Transfer to chilled drinking or champagne glasses. If desired, garnish with leftover fresh or frozen fruit.


  • For the best flavor, buy fresh fruit (cranberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and/or blueberries) and freeze them the night before you plan to make your Holiday Frozen Sangria. I don’t bother to freeze the pomegranate arils, although you could, if you’d like.
  • Freeze more than the suggested amount of frozen fruit in case you want to garnish your drinks or need more fruit to thicken the drink, should it become runny during the blending process.
  • I keep the quantity of blackberries and blueberries on the lower side and let the other fruit dominate because there’s a risk of over-blending the sangria just to break down the blackberry seeds and blueberry skins.
  • For sweeteners, you can use granulated options or 100% pure honey, 100% pure maple syrup, or agave nectar.
  • Yields will vary, but will be in the neighborhood of about 5-6 cups of sangria.
