Pomegranate Sangria

by Erin

Sangria isn’t just for the warm summer months. Mix up with winter pomegranate sangria and it may be your new favorite holiday beverage.

Pomegranate Sangria

Another pomegranate alcoholic beverage? Another sangria? Why yes! Not to down play any of the other sangrias I have shared but this one is my favorite so far. Maybe I am partial to pomegranate, maybe it’s the seasonally delicious citrus fruits, or maybe you need to stir this up for your New Year’s party tomorrow. Serve it garnished with some bubbly for some extra festive flair.

I love sangria! I made a pomegranate sangria for Thanksgiving this year. It was so good, I should have made a double batch. I’ll have to try yours.
