PEAR POMEGRANATE SANGRIA is so easy to make and always a crowd favorite! This cocktail recipe is perfect for entertaining at the holidays!
We are heading straight into busy season! It’s coming and there’s no stopping it. It kicks off with October and getting ready for all the fun parties and activities for the adults and kids, then straight into Thanksgiving planning and then we crash into Christmas and New Year’s Eve!!! This is the beginning of entertaining season and we need to make it as easy on ourselves as possible so that we get to enjoy it. That’s where Pear Pomegranate Sangria comes into play.
This drink tastes fantastic, has the best colors for the holidays and it can be made (and tastes best if you do) the day before! That’s the best way to throw a party. All make ahead dishes and drinks so you can enjoy the party with your friends and family!
I love the flavor of Pear Pomegranate Sangria. It’s not too sweet, has the fantastic fruit flavors and it’s so simple to make. If you find that it’s not sweet enough for you, you could always add in some simple syrup. That’s just equal parts sugar and water that you bring to a boil just until the sugar dissolves. Allow it to cool down and then add a little at a time until you reach the desired sweetness.
