Sangria for the Holidays? Really? you may ask? Yep but not quite your traditional sangria. This one will bring some festive vibes to your party. In addition to the usual fruit suspects (apples and oranges), pomegranate and cinnamon steal the show in this amazing (and super easy) recipe. Try it and print out a few copies of it because your guests will ask for it!
For about 6 people.
1/2 cup of pomegranate seeds
2 oranges sliced (keep the skin on)
2 apples sliced
2 cinnamon sticks
1 bottle of red wine (mild is better. I use a red Zinfandel)
3 cups of sparkling water
Place the pomegranate seeds in a pitcher and crush with a fork or a spoon
Add the oranges, the apples, and the cinnamon
Pour the bottle of wine and mix well
Cover with a plastic wrap and put in the fridge overnight
Serve in martini glasses for a vavavoom effect and don’t forget the sparkling water! Can also be served with the turkey, I swear they go really well together!
Non-alcoholic and kids friendly version: skip the wine and add a mix of apple juice and pomegranate juice instead!
