The Holidays are just around the corner and it’s time to start the celebrations. Whether it’s Thanksgiving or Christmas, no holiday party is complete without a festive cocktail. I was looking for a simple recipe for my Friendsgiving, something that would satisfy many palettes and taste like home. I decided to go with a simple Harvest Sangria, mixing some white wine, harvest apples, and spices of the season. It turned out to be a hit at my party so I wanted to share the recipe with you all!
I snagged this two gallon drink dispenser from Walmart for only $12. It was the perfect size to fit on my bar cart and have enough room for cups and fruit dressings. It held the perfect amount of sangria to entertain a room of up to 25 people. It’s now a kitchen staple and I can’t wait to use it for my Spring and Summer cocktails as well.
Below is the recipe I crafted for this Harvest Sangria. I used a Moscato Sangria which is on the sweeter side to pair with my fruits. However, you can use virtually any white wine in this recipe. I hope you enjoy, and if you do chose to make this please tag me in all your pretty pictures! I can’t wait to see!
SWEET HARVEST SANGRIA
- (3) 1.5 Liters of Moscato Sangria
- 1 L Cranberry Vodka
- 4 pack of Ginger Beer
- 1.5 cups Apple Cider
- (2) Blood Orange
- (3 Tbsp) Cinnamon Spice
- (1) Pomegranate (or you can use cranberries)
- (3) Harvest Apples
- Thyme (optional- for dressing the cocktail)
HOW TO MAKE IT:
Slice the blood orange, pick out the pomegranates, and dice up the harvest apples and throw them into the bottom of the drink dispenser.
Combine fruit, moscato, apple cider, and vodka in the drink dispsenser and stir, adding in the cinnamon to taste.
Let chill in the refrigerator for 45 minutes before serving.
After 45 minutes it’s ready to serve. Pour yourself a cup, top it off with a splash of Ginger Beer and dress it with some time or cranberries!
Looking forward to sharing more recipes with you! Hope everyone enjoys the Holiday Season!
