Winter White Wine Winter Sangria–say that three times fast! I expressed my love for a good white wine spritzer earlier this summer, and I’ve made a few yuletide modifications to my favorite cocktail making it the perfect aperitif for your next holiday gathering. It’s incredibly easy, looks exceptionally festive, and is certain to be a Christmas crowd-pleaser!
- 1L Bottle of Club Soda
- 1 Large granny smith apple
- 1 Bag of fresh cranberries
- 1/8+ cup of sugar (or more, to taste)
- 1 Bottle of dry white wine
- Sprigs of fresh rosemary
The day before your soiree, cut a few sprigs of rosemary to make rosemary infused ice cubes–which are sure to ‘wow’ your guests and have them thinking you got a B.A. in Mixology. I like to use the King Cube Ice Tray for mine.
Just prior to your party, in a large pitcher, pour in a diced green apple, a couple handfuls of cranberries, sugar, club soda and wine. Stir your ingredients and then allow it to set for a few minutes so that all of the sugar has dissolved. In either a wine glass or a highball glass, pour the cocktail over a rosemary ice cube and voila! I like to have additional rosemary on hand for garnish, as well. Cheers!!! What’s your favorite cocktail for the holidays?
