Colorful Cocktails: Thanksgiving Sangria

Thanksgiving Sangria is here to make us feel warm, cozy, and grateful this holiday season. It’s deliciously enchanting and the barrage of fruit packed into a glass pitcher makes for a gorgeous tabletop addition. Anyone can make this simple recipe that pairs perfectly with a warm helping of apple pie or homemade stuffing. Everyone makes Thanksgiving Sangria a little differently. Our favorite is a twist on the classic recipe. Add some seasonal cranberries and pinch of Allspice for a bountiful red wine Sangria. Not into the reds? Try this White Sangria recipe where they use autumn ripe Granny Smith Apples and Barlett Pears to compliment a sweet Moscato. Want something with a bite to it? Apple Cider Sangria has hints of caramel and ginger that will put you in a very thankful mindset. Thanksgiving dinner won’t feel complete without a fruity and spicy Thanksgiving Sangria to wash it all down with. Pour yourself a cup, let the satisfaction wash over you, and don’t forget to tell the people in your life why you appreciate them. Happy Thanksgiving, Twisters!

“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. “

-William Arthur Ward
