One of my favorite drinks to order when I am out at a restaurant is sangria.
When my husband and I were on vacation with my family in California, I ordered a glass with dinner one night.
Unfortunately, it turned out to be terrible and I was incredibly disappointed.
So of course I decided to give it a go at home instead.
I’ve been playing around with different variations and decided that this pomegranate cranberry one is my favorite for this time of year.
It’s still on the lighter side but has that fall / winter feel from the cranberry, pomegranate and red wine.
The cinnamon sticks and combination of pears, apples and oranges also adds to that holiday feeling that I love so much.
This sangria is perfect for holiday gatherings, especially as it is something that can (and should) be made in advance.
And that beautiful deep red color just looks gorgeous in a pitcher.

*You can decrease the amount of ginger ale if you like your sangria more tart and less sweet. I used the full can but prefer mine slightly on the sweeter side. Adjust the amount to your taste.

If you are gluten free - be sure to use an appropriate brandy.
