Christmas Sangria Recipe

Christmas Sangria Recipe – This fun white wine sangria and all full of fall and winter flavors. It is perfect for Christmas and all your winter get togethers! 

You guys know I love sangria, right?  It all started with this Red Sangria recipe that has been super popular around here.  I have always been a fan of wine, so having it in sangria is kind of a no brainer. A fun, new, and easy way to drink it!

Plus we have a version with white wine, because White Sangria is a must for the white wine lovers out there right?  And can you guess what else there is?  Rose wine is all the rage, right?  So a Berry Rose Sangria was a must.  I mean, how could you not.  So today we are back with a version for Christmas!

I love a good glass of wine, but there is just something about mixing in fruits, other liquors, and making it something special.  Plus you get to snack on the boozy fruit at the end, which is always a tasty idea!

How To Make Christmas Sangria

  1. This starts with a dry white wine as the base. Pour your favorite white wine into a large pitcher.
  2. Mix in the pomegranate juice, triple sec, brandy and sugar and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
  3. Next you mix in all your sliced fruits and the store in the fridge for a few hours before you serve.

Apples and oranges are what you can easily find in the grocery store for fruit right now, so those are what I added. Plus pomegranate seeds because I just have a thing for the this time of year.  Pomegranate Vodka Gimlets are one of my favorite winter drinks.

If you are throwing a holiday get together this winter sangria is a must!  You can make it in the morning and then just let it sit in the fridge all day long.  The longer the flavors get to blend together, the better it is!  I used a little triple sec and brandy in this version and they really help bring out the fruit and winter flavors that you want.

I am kind of known for making any cocktail fizzy…. Cranberry Vodka Cocktail.  But I didn’t with this one!  If you are like me and you want it sweeter and fizzier, add a little ginger ale or sprite when you serve it.  It will be even more festive and fun!

Tips and Tricks for Making Holiday Sangria

  • Use a dry white wine like a Pinot Grigo or Chardonnay.  You just want to avoid anything sweet, because you are adding fruit juice and fruit that will sweeten it up. 
  • You don’t have to spend a lot of money on the wine. You adding a lot of ingredients, so a bottle under $10 is perfect for sangria.
  • Use fruit that is in season.  During the middle of winter you can find apples, citrus, and pomegranate are readily available, so that is what I used for this. Cranberries would be a great addition to this as well.
  • Make sangria and let it sit in the fridge for a few hours before serving.  The fruit soaks up the flavors and infuses the entire drink with flavor.

What brandy did you use for this? I'm not a brandy drinker so I don't know if it matters what brand. Thank you

I have the brand Tuaca that I have used for a couple of years, and it works really well in Sangria. I am not much of a brandy drinker, but it is a reasonably priced brand and works well in recipes.
