Simple Sangria Recipe

It's that time of year again.  The time where you have to find a way to deal with your family so you turn to booze.

I kid.  I kid.

I do, however, love to celebrate the holidays with a tasty sangria.  I love sangria because it's usually sweet and doesn't taste like alcohol.  (I'm one of those sissy girls.)  There aren't a lot of ingredients for sangria.   I also like sangria because it's pretty.  Always important.  Today I thought I'd share with you one of my holiday favorites.

Sangria is also ridiculously easy to make. It's one of those drinks that looks fancy/hard to make but totally isn't.

Holiday Sangria

Here are the ingredients for sangria:

  • 1 bottle white wine (cheap is always good for sangria)
  • 1/2-1 bottle sparkling apple cider or apple juice (both work. amount depends on how bubbly you like your sangria)
  • 2 clementines
  • 1 Granny Smith apple
  • 1 Gala apple
  • 1-2 cups cranberries

You will need to chop up your fruit.

Once you have your fruit all clean and chopped and sliced and diced, you will add it to a pitcher with the wine and cider.

Chill in the fridge until you're read to serve.  You could mix this up over night.  I would probably wait to add the sparkling cider until just before serving if you are waiting that long.  (Make sure it's chilled!)
