Cranberry & Rosemary Sangria! With Thanksgiving this week and the fast-approaching holiday party season I thought it would be fun to share one of my favorite holiday drinks with you! You are going to love this tasty drink and to top it off it is so festive and pretty…the rosemary and cranberry bring the holiday colors to your glass! Disclaimer I reserve this drink for the ladies because do men really want a pretty fruity drink? This beautiful sangria is perfect for serving at your family Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners, holiday brunch, fun girls get together…
1 Granny Smith apple 1 Braeburn apple ¼ cup sugar (more, for garnish) 1 heaping Cup Fresh cranberries Large Sprig rosemary 1/2 cup white grape juice 1 Bottle Pinot Grigio 1 Can club soda
Chop apples in small cubes
In a large pitcher, combine all of the ingredients
Mix well, so that the sugar fully dissolves
Place the pitcher in the refrigerator to chill
While the sangria chills you can make the garnish ~ to do this, simply place about 1/2 cup of granulated sugar in a shallow bowl, lightly wet the rosemary and then give it a good shake to remove any excess water. Roll the sprigs in the sugar until they are coated as you please. Once the pitcher has chilled for about an hour, it should be ready to serve – absolutely gorgeous, right?
