Celebrate the season with cheer and a tasty holiday cocktail in hand! This drink is not only delicious (naturally, it is sangria after all), but also festive as it boasts the greens and reds of the season. Quick in prep time and sure to please. Enjoy!
Cranberry White Sangria
1 bottle of Pinot Grigio
1/2 cup of white grape juice
2 apples (one red and one white)
1 cup of fresh cranberries
1 sprig of fresh rosemary
1/4 cup of sugar
First, chop your apples into small cubes. Then, combine the apples, cranberries, sugar, wine and grape juice in a pitcher. Stir to help the sugar dissolve. Then, top off the sangria with club soda to give it a bit of bubbly. Finally, add your sprig of rosemary for garnish and to help cut the sweetness.
Set your Christmas sangria in the refrigerator to chill, for the sugar to dissolve a bit more, and for the flavors to blend. Meanwhile, time to rim your glasses! Prep your wine glasses by filling the bottom of one small plate with water and another small plate with white sugar. Carefully dip the rim of each glass first in the water and then in the sugar. Beautiful! Sugar wine glasses. Bring your sangria out of the fridge and divide among the four glasses. Be sure to include a generous serving of fruit in each glass. Finish off the Christmas cocktail with a cute paper straw, festive straw tag and personalized holiday cocktail napkin. Serve with appetizers for a great holiday party!
