Sangria is typically seen as a summer-time drink, but just because the temperatures have dropped doesn’t meant you have to give up this delicious celebratory drink! We just made a few festive modifications, and there you have it – Christmas Sangria! Make a batch for the adults, then swap out the wine for cranberry juice for a treat for the kids too. Serve something different at this year’s Christmas party!
2 large green apples
2 large red apples
1 cup maraschino cherries
2 cups sliced strawberries
3 strips of citrus rind
1 cinnamon stick
1 bottle of red or rose wine
3 cups lemonade
Cut the apples lengthwise into thin slices. For an extra festive touch, slice them into star shapes with cookie cutters.
Place the sliced apples and the rest of the fruit into a large bowl. Add citrus rind and cinnamon stick.
Pour wine and lemonade over the fruit and mix.
Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours up to one day.
Serve over ice with a lemon or lime wedge.Enjoy!
