Thirsty Thursday: It’s a Wonderful Sangria

It’s rare to think about drinking sangria during the cold winter months, but here’s a harmonious concoction that’s sure to lift your spirits. This winter white sangria is a shareable drink to make for guests during the holidays. Not only is it crisp and refreshing, but there’s also a comforting undertone of warm cloves and nutmeg.

Combine dry white wine with the autumnal spices, crisp slivers of pear and apple, and Damiana liqueur which will add a citrusy sweetness. Let this “make-ahead” holiday punch refrigerate overnight to allow the flavors to fully develop. The next day, you just combine this mixture with some chilled bubbly for sparkling, fruity sangria that will please a crowd.

Bottoms up, folks.

It’s a Wonderful Sangria

Ingredients:

  • 1 bottle chilled dry white wine
  • 1 bottle chilled champagne (modestly good champagne will do)
  • 3 oz. Damiana liqueur (herbal liqueur with citrus and vanilla flavors)
  • 2 freshly sliced pears
  • 2 apples (sliced and cored)
  • 20 whole cloves
  • 1 tsp. ground nutmeg

Directions:

In a large pitcher, add the pears, apples, cloves and nutmeg. Add the Damiana liqueur and stir. Add the wine and stir gently. Refrigerate overnight.

When you’re ready to serve, pour in your champagne, stirring it slowly within the mixture. Serve in an ice-filled wineglass.
