Apple Cider Cranberry Sangria

Hi, friends! Can you believe it’s that time of year again?  It seems like only a few weeks ago that we were planning for our last holiday party – if you remember last year we made an amazing Pomegranate Spritzer and a delicious New Year’s Eve Punch!

What would the holidays be without delicious food and drinks?  That’s such a big part of the festivities and to be honest, I look forward to creating and making new recipes each year.

This year we have a very holiday feeling Apple Cider Cranberry Sangria for you.  We used a Mirassou Winery’s Red Blend and it really ties all the flavors together and gives you a warm and cozy drink to serve your family and friends. Check it out below!

You can’t have a holiday party without the perfect punch or sangria. Right? And, if you’re like me, you want it to look festive as well as incredibly yummy. I like to make recipes that I know people will ask what’s in it and want to make it themselves sometime. So, it’s always nice to have a recipe that’s easy to make too!

Mirassou’s Red Blend has sophisticated flavors of pomegranate and dark cherry which are well-complemented by Zinfandel’s spicy notes and red fruit flavors. In my opinion, that makes this wine the perfect one to use in the Apple Cider Cranberry Sangria.
