How to Make Cranberry Christmas Sangria
This simple Cranberry Christmas Sangria is made with white wine and Chambord, one of my favorite raspberry liqueurs.
Not only is it a mix of sweet and tart, but it looks very fancy! It makes a wonderful drink for any holiday party.
Fill a pitcher with a half a cup each of raspberries, cubed granny smith apples and whole cranberries.
Next, pour your favorite type of white wine over the fruit.
I used Pinot Grigio because it’s a sweet white wine and will balance out the tartness of the cranberries, apples and raspberries.
Add a fourth of a cup of raspberry liqueur such as Chambord and one half cup of cran-raspberry juice.
Stir it all together and refrigerate your sangria for several hours or overnight before serving.
If your fruit is extra sour, your sangria might be too tart. If so, add 1-2 tablespoons of sugar depending on how tart it tastes. Be sure to only put a little sugar in at a time, you don’t want it to end up too sweet.
After a few hours and the fruit juices have soaked into your sangria, do a taste test.
Tips for Adding Fizz to Your Christmas Sangria
I like my sangria to have some fizz, if you do as well, add a cup of lemon-lime soda to your pitcher right before serving.
This will also cut any tartness and make your sangria a little more sweet without having to add sugar.
I hope you enjoy this Cranberry Raspberry Christmas Sangria as much as we did! Happy New Year!
