A Halloween party isn’t just for kids! Celebrate the season with your friends by serving a festive Halloween cocktail. This delicious and easy “Hallowine” Sangria is the perfect addition to any grown-up gathering this season!

Glass of red wine sangria with blackberries and oranges for Halloween party

Halloween is definitely Keith’s favorite holiday! This year we decided to host an adult Halloween party, complete with festive food and drinks, to help our friends get in the spirit too!

Why this Sangria is perfect for your Halloween party:

  • The cocktail is full of blood-red wine and orange-and-black fruit to really set the stage!
  • You can jazz up the glasses with orange and black straws to match your holiday decor.
  • It’s an easy make-ahead option that you can stir together in advance — and have ready for your guests as soon as they arrive!

HOSTESS TIPS AND VARIATIONS:

  • Don’t forget to allow plenty of time for the beverage to chill before your party (it’s a great prep-ahead solution)!
  • Wait to stir in the club soda, fruit, and ice just before serving. You don’t want the ice to water down the sangria in advance.
  • While I love how “spooky” the red wine looks, you can also make this sangria with white wine. Just make sure that you use orange and black fruit for that fun Halloween theme!
  • I showed Casillero del Diablo wine here because it has a “spooky” name; however, you can use any red wine that you prefer.

  1. Well now I know what I’m drinking come Halloween! This sangria looks absolutely delicious! Your pictures are just gorgeous too. Love the use of Cabernet in here, Blair! Pinned!

  2. Such a fun drink, with such a fun name!! 🙂 I bet all your guests absolutely loved these–that Halloween party sounds like such a fun time!

  3. Hi! Is this sangria very sweet? I prefer mine on the dry side. If it’s sweet, would you recommend just cutting the sugar a bit? I’ve never made sangria so I’m a little nervous as I’m making it for a party! Thank you! 🙂

      I’ve made this the last 3 Halloween’s and it’s always a winner! It’s taste is fantastic and the make ahead component is a plus! Pretty, delicious and easy!
