Many restaurants have shared their famous recipes for sauces, main courses, and desserts, but for the most part cocktail recipes have been kept top secret—that is, until now. The Cheesecake Factory released their red sangria recipe online for customers to try out at home, and it's so easy to recreate.
The nice thing about this sangria recipe is that it calls for pretty basic ingredients, many of which you probably already have on your bar cart. As far as alcohol goes, you'll need cabernet sauvignon, riesling, and spiced rum. You'll also need simple syrup, which you can find at basically any liquor store or make it at home using just water and sugar. The wine and liquor you use for sangria doesn't have to be top shelf since it all comes together when mixed well, so this is a great opportunity to use any bottles you've had laying around the house.

Slice each half (going across) into approximately ¼” slices creating orange half moons. PINEAPPLE PREPARATION Slice two ¼” – ½” wheels from pineapple. Cut wheels into 8 equal size triangle pieces (like a pizza). Trim off rind. APPLE PREPARATION Cut apple into quarters and remove core. Slice each quarter into approximately ¼” slices then cut in half again.

To add in the fruity flavors, you'll need cranberry juice, mango juice, and passion fruit juice. A pinch of cinnamon and orange slices, chopped apples, and chopped pineapple will top off the sangria base. For the best results, the recipe suggests keeping the juice, fruit, and alcohol mixture in the refrigerator, then adding that to a glass before topping it off with a splash of soda water. This guarantees optimal freshness and a well-mixed blend of flavors before drinking.
As some Cheesecake Factory locations begin reopening their dining rooms, this recipe is a great way to bring the restaurant to you if you don't quite feel like eating out yet. After all, there's never a bad time for sangria. You can view the full recipe and ingredient list on The Cheesecake Factory website.
