The best recipe for sangria granita snow cones, served in mini snow cone cups to add extra charm! The recipe is made with orange juice, pomegranate juice, sugar, water, wine and fall spices to give it the most delicious fall flavor!

If you all remember my black Sangria last year, this is another recipe using dark wine. Technically it’s frozen sangria. However, I really like snow cones and snow cone cups too, so we gave this recipe a fun twist.

In addition to loving it myself, I had several people test this recipe and everyone gave it a big thumbs up and requested more!

In other words, it’s super easy to make ahead of time and uses fall ingredients like pomegranate juice, cinnamon, orange and blackberries.
