POMEGRANATE SANGRIA is the perfect red wine cocktail to go with your Thanksgiving or Christmas entertaining! This drink goes fast so be sure to have enough!!
I’ve told you before and I’ll tell you again, I’m a big fan of serving pitcher drinks when having friends over. I the fall and winter there’s just so much you can do with spices when you make drinks in large quantities and let’s not forget the best part of all. You don’t have to spend the night mixing drinks for friends.
Pomegranate Sangria is so good. I made it for my husband and I to try out before Thanksgiving (it’s a tough job but someone has to do it) to make sure that it would work for the big day. Oh my goodness. The first think I noticed was how much I loved the colors! Deep dark red from the wine and juices mixed with the green of the apple, brown of the pear and orange of the… well, orange. It looks like the fall leaves outside! Then we had the first sips and it was amazing. My husbands eyes got big and he was nodding yes as he sipped. That’s how I know I’ve got a winner on my hands. As soon as he pulled the cup from his mouth he said, “That’s trouble.” It is so good and easy to drink that you will want to be sure and keep track of your drinks before you get caught up in the taste and get into trouble. Make this sangria and relax with your friends this holiday season.
