Christmas is coming and we all know how busy one can get during this festive season with all the gatherings, parties and whatnot. This cocktail will make a great addition to your holiday get-togethers and it's easy to boot! Winter Sangria is fruity just like the cold summertime beverage you may be used to, except instead of adding ice cubes to each glass this slow cooked mulled wine version is served warm.
Pour wine, pomegranate juice, brandy , triple sec and sugar in a slow cooker.
Stir and mix all ingredients. Add cinnamon sticks, diced fruit (except for oranges) and turn on low for 2 hours.
Add sliced oranges and enjoy!
Add orange slices right before serving. The white pitch leaves a bitter taste if added with the apple and pear.
Put cups near the crockpot and encourage your guests to help themselves! Setting up a simple beverage station takes the worry out of mixing drinks during the festivities, and frees up your time to mingle with your guests!
