Bloody Sangria Halloween Punch is a simple cocktail recipe for spooky season! With only four main ingredients (plus fruit!), you can whip this up easily without more than 5 minutes of prep time. The longer it sits, the better it will taste! Serves 6.
Halloween is coming up FAST, isn’t it?
I feel like we all say this every year. It starts with Halloween and before you know it, it’s the new year.
It doesn’t help that I am already seeing Christmas items hitting the shelves… It’s not even Halloween yet – I haven’t even bought Halloween candy!
This is actually the first year in a LONGGGG time that we are dressing up for Halloween. I use the term “dressing up” loosely since it’s just matching salt and pepper sweatshirts to go with Babycakes being avocado toast LOL. At least it’s better than nothing right?
Since this isn’t a big kiddo Halloween year for us, I’m thinking about the adults and what they might like.
Enter this bloody sangria Halloween punch.
It’s absolutely delicious, not too sweet, and totally a snap to make. It only requires four liquid ingredients, and a bunch of fruit! I like that this is a bit drier than other sangrias, because I always find those a bit hard to drink and enjoy all that tasty fruit.
Plus, we don’t need much more sugar with all that Halloween candy, am I right??

how can I make this halloween punch smoke?
If you are looking for a more spoooooky impact, you can use food-grade dry ice to make the sangria smoke! Note that the fruit at the bottom might freeze, but it’ll still be tasty and it will act like ice! Just don’t let anyone get any in their glasses – it can be easy to accidentally ingest. I like to use one big piece at the bottom of a punch bowl and everyone can ladle out a glass safely!
can I make this ahead of time?
This sangria tastes better the longer it sits! If you are using an open container, it’ll last up to 4 hours in the fridge before serving. However, if you want to make it even further ahead of time, simply store it in a sealed container or pitcher for up to 4 days.
