This simple sangria comes together ahead of time, making entertaining so much easier! Crisp apples and pops of tangy sweet pomegranate make this colorful cocktail so fun to drink!
750mLbottle red wine
3 - 4applesdiced, divided
arils of one pomegranate
In a pitcher, combine the wine, pomegranate liqueur, brandy, apple cider, one of the diced apples and the orange slices. Refrigerate for at least four hours.
Serve with additional diced apples and add pomegranate arils. Top off with a splash of sparkling water.
Use a fruity red wine that you love. Save expensive red wines to drink alone. I like using a Grenache when making sangria.If you prefer white wine, you can certainly substitute with that. Expect a slightly pinkish color.When entertaining, you may want to set up a sangria bar with a pitcher of the sangria and bowls full of diced apples (be sure to toss them with a bit of lemon juice), pomegranate arils and some bottles of sparkling water. You may even want to put out some cute spoons for snacking on the apples…they taste amazing!
