So can we talk about Christmas drinks??

Christmas Sangria | halfbakedharvest.com @hbharvest

Because it’s “Christmas Drink Saturday”!! Yes, yes, yes!

I have a few drinks to share this month and I’m pretty excited about them… OKAY, really excited about them! My family has been getting me into this whole mixed drink thing and even though I am not big on alcohol, I’m really having fun making them drinks. I will not lie, I am not the world’s best mixologist. I have made a few too many REALLY strong drinks (think sanitize your cuts STRONG). SO, I am sticking to pretty simple recipes, but learning a little more as I go.

I’m kicking off  “Christmas Drink Saturday” with this festive sangria. It’s got all the flavors of Christmas + a bottle of wine. Yes, a little white wine, a little ginger beer, a little apple cider, some brandy, a few pears, a few oranges and a bunch of pomegranate arils. It’s definitely on the sweeter side due to the apple cider and ginger, so you have to be into a sweet drink. If you are, this is totally for you, and I gotta say, it’s pretty delicious!

And totally pretty! Perfect for your holiday parties!! Bring on the holiday entertaining!

Ingredients

  • 1 (750ml) bottle white wine
  • 1 (12 ounce) ginger beer plus more for topping if desired
  • 1 1/2 cups apple cider
  • 1/2 cup brandy
  • 3 pears sliced
  • 3 oranges sliced
  • arils from 1 pomegranate
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • cinnamon sugar for the rims of your glasses (optional)

Instructions

  • In a large pitcher, combine all the ingredient. Stir and then place in the fridge until chilled. Don't chill for longer than a few hours or the ginger beer will lose its fizz.
  • Before serving, rim your glasses with cinnamon sugar. Fill each glass with ice and pour the sangria over the ice. If desired top with more ginger beer. Garnish with sliced of pears, oranges and pomegranate arils. Drink up!

Notes

*To make this more than a few hours in advance, just add all the ingredients minus the ginger beer. Then before serving, stir in the ginger beer!

  1. This looks delicious! I don’t have any pear or pomegranate, but I’m wondering if I could substitute apples and cranberries instead and still have the same/similar turnout?? What do you think? Thanks!

    1. Hey Candace,
      I think both of those would work nicely. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! Happy Holidays! xTieghan

    When someone writes an piece of writing he/she maintains the idea of
    a user in his/her brain that how a user can understand it.
    Thus that’s why this article is great. Thanks!

    May I simply just say what a comfort to discover a person that really knows what they are talking about online.
    You certainly know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More and more people really need to look at this and understand this
    side of the story. I can’t believe you are not more popular
    since you most certainly have the gift.
