What is sangria?

Sangria is an alcoholic beverage that usually consists of wine, fresh fruit, fruit juices and some kind of non-alcoholic mixer. A festive Christmas sangria often includes warm spices and seasonal fruit like cranberries or pomegranates.

With holiday parties just around the corner, I like to have a bottle of wine or two on hand at all times.

Living in the Okanagan, wine country, we are fortunate to be surrounded by a wide selection of wineries. In our opinion, the best white wine to use for this Christmas sangria recipe is this Riesling from See Ya Later Ranch. Cabernet sauvignon, pinot grigio, sauvignon blanc or a rose would also work but won’t have the same rich flavour.

How to garnish a winter sangria:

  • Add lime slices, green apples or orange slices to this festive drink.
  • Use cinnamon sticks, star anise or other whole spices to warm up the flavour profile.
  • Experiment with seasonal fruits, rosemary sprigs, green pears or granny smith apples!
