Holiday Sangria

Winter Solstice Sangria
Yield: 2 qrts,  8-10 servings
Prep time: 10 minutes

       Tired of the same old adult punch bowl being the center of your holiday party? With a few ingredients and little effort you can produce wonderfully seasonal Sangria to elevate this year’s festivities. Use a nice fruity (preferably Spanish) wine, a bit of triple sec and pomegranate juice to make your party the talk of the town for years to come.

2  750ml bottles red wine
16 oz pomegranate juice
1 cup triple sec
1 cup simple syrup
1 blood orange, sliced
1 lemon, sliced
1 pear, sliced

1. In a large pitcher or punch bowl pour the wine, pom juice, triple sec, and simple syrup; stir to combine.
2. Add the sliced fruit and chill the mixture in the fridge overnight. Serve

Chef’s Note
       Simple syrup is a mixture of equal parts sugar and water. The easiest way to make it quickly is combine 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar in a microwave safe measuring cup. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, until the sugar has dissolved.
       The sangria makes a great drink for holiday parties and can be the base of many cocktails. Pair it with a little champagne or seltzer and you have an excellent spritzer.
