Everybody knows that hot toddy’s and mulled wine are essential to a cozy night in or walking around chilly outdoor holiday markets. But what about the times you’re sweating through your ugly Christmas sweater or singing carols in a very crowded living room? That’s when a nice cold sangria is just the ticket. Our gal Luci at Luci’s Morsels came up with a fizzy and festive sangria that’s easy to whip up and even easier to send down the hatch.
Pomegranate Ginger Sangria
(yields 6 servings)
1 1/2 Cups pomegranate juice
1 1/2 Cups ginger beer
1/2 Cup pomegranate seeds
1/2 lemon, seeded and sliced
1 bottle sweet, sparkling red wine*
*Luci uses Riunite Lambrusco Wine – A general guideline is that the sweeter the fruit, the drier the wine you want to use. Because pomegranate and ginger are tart, Riunite Lambrusco is a sweet, sparkling Italian wine and perfect to mix in
Combine all ingredients in pitcher. Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Stir before serving.
