Sangria is a traditional beverage for the summer months and for those who live in a sub-tropical climate, but a shift in consumer preferences has led to the creation of Christmas sangria, which builds on tradition in new, thirst-quenching ways. Instead of featuring tropical fruits and juices, this Christmas sangria recipe is packed with season offerings that only come around in November and December including cranberries and clementines.
To create this Christmas sangria, the ingredients required include clementines, lemon, fresh cranberries, star anise, cinnamon, clementine juice, cranberry juice, ginger ale and, to make it a cocktail if desired, vodka and white wine. After letting the ingredients sit overnight, the prepared drink is ideal for family get-togethers.
A cold weather twist on a summer classic, this Christmas sangria is a deliciously cold way to enjoy seasonal flavors in a new way.
