Made with Chianti, fresh oranges, limoncello, triple sec and Campari, this hearty sangria has a rich citrus flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 bottle medium-bodied Italian red wine (e.g. Chianti)
  • 1 large navel orange
  • 4 ounces limoncello
  • 2 ounces Campari
  • 2 ounces triple sec
  • 1 ounce simple syrup (or more to taste)
  • Angostura bitters
  • Orange wedges for garnish

Instructions

  1. Cut two slices from the middle of the middle of the orange and muddle them in the bottom of a large pitcher. Juice the remainder of the orange and add along with the wine, limoncello, Campari, triple sec and simple syrup. Stir to combine.
  2. Chill the sangria for at least 4 hours to allow the flavors to blend. Pour over ice and add 2 dashes of bitters to each glass. Garnish with an orange wedge.
