Low-Cal Slimmer Sangria Recipe

You'll love the flavor of this skinny sangria recipe and most won't even know there have been any changes made to cut the calorie count!


Sangria is a summer staple sip, but we've been known to mix up this fruity wine concoction throughout the year. Though it's chock full of fresh fruit, sangria is also known to have a lot of sugar in it, so don't think you're skimming off calories pouring a glass of sangria over any other cocktail.

That being said, we challenged ourselves to cut the calories in a glass of our favorite summer sip. The result? We've taken the calorie count in our sangria from 150 and dropped it all the way down to 85!

  • 1 bottle of your favorite red wine
  • 1 cup light orange juice
  • 1/4 cup brandy
  • 1/4 cup cointreau
  • 2 packets of Stevia (we prefer NuStevia brand)
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 1 apple, diced
  • 2 cups club soda
Directions

Combine the red wine, orange juice, brandy, cointreau, Stevia, oranges and apples in a large pitcher and chill for at least two hours. When you're ready to serve, add in the club soda and serve with lots of ice for a totally refreshing, totally delicious and totally light sip!
