12 Days of Cocktails: Christmas Sangria

It’s day 10 and today’s recipe can be made in a big batch for all your guest to enjoy. This take on the classic sangria comes from Popsugar.


    1 (750ml) bottle white wine

    1 (12 ounce) ginger beer plus more for topping if desired

    1 1/2 cups apple cider
    1/2 cup brandy
    3 pears sliced
    3 oranges sliced
    arils from 1 pomegranate
    3 cinnamon sticks
    cinnamon sugar for the rims of your glasses (optional)


In a large pitcher, combine all the ingredient. Stir and then place in the fridge until chilled. Don’t chill for longer than a few hours or the ginger beer will lose its fizz.

Before serving, rim your glasses with cinnamon sugar. Fill each glass with ice and pour the sangria over the ice. If desired top with more ginger beer. Garnish with sliced of pears, oranges and pomegranate arils. Drink up!
