Christmas Cranberry Pomegranate Sangria

Christmas Cranberry Pomegrante Sangria

Our annual Ugly Christmas Sweater party was this past weekend, and we certainly had a blast. I know some of you are thinking that Ugly Christmas Sweater parties are sooo 2007, but I happen to think that they are still hilarious, and I love seeing what “interesting” outfits are friends come up with. Speaking of ugly christmas sweaters, did you know they are going for upwards of $50 on ebay? I’m thinking I should sell part of my growing stash to help pay my post-Christmas credit card bill.

Even though the menu differs every year, we always stick to simple cocktails and appetizers – perfect for mingling and snacking at the same time. For drinks, I wanted to do something special other than the typical wine, and sangria was perfect for the occasion. Nothing screams Christmas like wine, citrus and cranberries! I used a white wine, since the cranberry juice gives it the red hue, but feel free to use whatever you have on hand. Sangria is a perfect way to use up a bottle of wine that you may have gotten as a gift but aren’t a big fan of, since the flavor is altered with the juice and fruit. Cheers to the holiday season!

  1. This looks amazing – fabulous photo. I especially love the citrus star on the pitcher.

    I’ll keep this recipe in mind for my holiday party next year. It sounds like the perfect cocktail to serve!

    It is spelled Pomegranate. Just thought you might get more hits if you have that. :-)
