Christmas Sangria

Tuesday, December 20, 2016

Christmas is just a few days away and I am in complete holiday spirit mode.  Last week I wanted a festive drink and had a bunch of  winter fruits to use before they spoiled. I am talking pears, cranberries and all of the citruses- so I thought why not throw them all in a pitcher and make a tart sangria.  This Christmas Sangria is filled with flavors of the season and is the perfect cocktail to serve when hosting your friends and family. 

I am normally a dry white wine kind of gal but I went with a moscato to cut the bitterness and tartness from all the citrus.  The result? A perfect balance between sour and sweet.

What plans do you have for the holiday? Going anywhere to visit family? Or are you hosting the clan? I hope you all are as much in the spirit of Christmas as I am.

Cheers and enjoy!
