I really love sangria, but sometimes it feels like it is meant to be solely a summer cocktail. I typically drink it on a warm summer night. But why must we suffer the rest of the year and miss out on the deliciousness of a tasty sangria in the winter months? Well, I’m putting my foot down. No more deprivation. Haha!

This year I present to you with my Christmas Sangria. Using clementines and pomegranates, as well as a cranberry-apple drink, all of the fresh flavors I love in winter work, along with the red wine, to create a drink that is both refreshing and joyful. It is officially time to embrace the winter sangria my friends! Whether you serve it at your Christmas Eve celebration or whip it up as a nice addition to dinner throughout the week, this Christmas Sangria is bound to be a hit with your family and friends!

Isn’t it just so pretty with that fresh sprig of rosemary used as a garnish?! This year we have a smaller group celebrating with us, so a pitcher of this delicious winter sangria will feel fun and should work well to serve us all.

Having an easy drink ready to go, along with a spread of holiday worthy dips and appetizers just puts us all in a joyful celebratory mood!
