A light and delicious cocktail, Sparkling Pear and Pomegranate Sangria is the perfect festive drink to serve for the holidays!
Can we just take a minute to admire the gorgeous colors in this sangria?! Fall brings out some of the best produce for cocktails. Pear and pomegranate being a couple of my favorites. (That’s not to say apples aren’t just as important. They are.) But this drink is just too beautiful to pass up.
This Sparkling Pear and Pomegranate Sangria is the perfect drink to serve at all of your holiday gatherings this year. It’s so fun for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or even New Years with its light, yet fancy bubbles, and it’s filled with boozy seasonal pears and pomegranate. It’s light enough to serve at brunch but is also dressy enough for dinner on New Year’s Eve.
I don’t like super sweet drinks, so I leave the sweetening up to wine and fruit in my sangria for the most part. And I use a pretty dry wine. If you like a sweeter drink, feel free to sub in Moscato or Reisling. If all that you have is red wine or rosé, I’m sure it would still be delightful in this sangria!
Do yourself a favor this holiday season and make a batch of this delicious sangria. I promise you won’t regret it, and you just might find your new go-to for holiday drinks! Oh, and your guests will love you. Cheers!
