Sure, sangria is fruity and refreshing, but that doesn't mean you're only allowed to drink it during the summer. Plus, December 20th is National Sangria Day, just in case you needed another reason to celebrate. This Latin crowd-pleasure has all the kick of a typical holiday cocktail without the heavy, sugary cream (we're talking about you, coquito!). And best of all, there is so much variety that you are bound to find the perfect fit for your next holiday gathering!
Take the usual holiday apple cider to the next level with a pitcher of Cinnamon Apple Sangria, sip on a strawberry-topped Chilean-Style Borgoña, or mix things up with a Sangria 43 made with sweet Licor 43 and red wine. Grab your pitcher (we love this one) and get mixing! Salud y felicidades!
Sangria is always a great choice when it comes to mixing up a pitcher of cocktails for a party. This recipe puts a simple twist on classic sangria by adding Licor 43. The flavors in the liqueur add deep notes to the red wine and citrus sipper. Start your cocktail hour with this lighter beverage and switch to wine as you move in to dinner.
It’s not a Spanish meal without this timeless blend of wine, brandy, and fruit juice. Although Sangria is often associated with the Old World, it’s enjoyed all over the Americas and perfectly accompanies any dish year-round. Make extra and pour them into bottles for guests to take home as gifts!
