The holidays are here and Holiday Sangria is a great signature cocktail for your gatherings. This is a light and festive cocktail that can be enjoyed by all. It has a white wine base, cranberry juice, apple cider, Grand Marnier, seltzer water and lots of fruit to make it pretty.
You can make this lighter by adding more juices and seltzer or make it more potent by adding more wine and Grand Marnier. The base recipe is light, refreshing and delicious. Make it as is or make it your own.
A pitcher of this makes a pretty addition to your holiday cocktail hour. Add ice to a glass and pour it over to serve.
If you like wine cocktails you need to try Tinto de Verano.
