Holiday Sangria

Who doesn't love a special holiday adult beverage? Kick your holiday party up a notch with this refreshing drink!

Holiday Sangria

1-2 cups fresh cranberries
1 orange, sliced
1 granny smith apple, diced
1 gala apple, diced
1 bottle sparkling cider
1 bottle white wine (I chose Pinot Grigio)

Layer the fruit in the bottom of a pitcher or drink dispenser. Pour the wine in and chill for several hours (or overnight). To serve, pour a healthy amount in a wine glass and top with a splash of sparkling cider.

Notes: Pretty and tasty! Enough said. Our guests enjoyed this drink. I chose a Pinot Grigio because I do not prefer super-sweet wine like Riesling (which can also be used). You can also go with a budget wine because you really can't taste the difference with all the yummy fruit flavors. Enjoy!
