Winter Sangria

Yields8 ServingsPrep Time10 minsTotal Time10 mins

 1 bottle of light-bodied red wine (I like Pinot Noir)
 1 cup orange juice or apple juice
  cup brandy
  cup orange liqueur (Triple Sec or Grand Marnier)
 ¼ cup simple syrup
 2 cinnamon sticks
 1 apple, cored and thinly sliced (or diced)
 1 green pear, cored and thinly sliced (or diced)
 ½ grapefruit, de-seeded and thinly sliced (or another sweet citrus)
  cup pomegranate arils (or cranberries)
 Rosemary, to serve

In a pitcher, combine the red wine, orange or apple juice, brandy, orange liqueur, and simple syrup. Give it a good stir. Carefully add the cinnamon sticks and fruit. Gently stir, cover, and let it sit in the fridge for at least three hours, preferably overnight.


Serve the winter sangria over ice. Gently roll a small sprig of rosemary in-between your hands to release the oils. Garnish the sangria with the rosemary. Enjoy!
