Because sangria isn’t JUST for the summer months. This winter version has all the gorgeous flavours that come with the cold months, including pomegranate, cinnamon and orange while still being that perfect cocktail to get you through the holidays. This sangria is combined with a mulled spices simple syrup and topped with pomegranate ariles, apple slices and oranges.

I don’t know about you, but our Christmas dinners tend to be a little CRAZY! Maybe it’s because we’re Indian or maybe it’s because my parents seem to make friends with anyone in a 50 feet radius, but there always seems to be so many people in our house and wading through the masses seems almost next to impossible.

The food prep starts at 8am with everyone running around frantically cooking and cleaning in preparation for our guests. The final product, bowls and bowls of food are laid out in the kitchen for everyone to serve themselves and it instantly becomes survival of the fittest. Balancing your plate of food in one hand and your wine/utensils/napkin in the other hand, you hope to God that you find a chair somewhere. Instead, you end up sitting on the stairs trying to eat your turkey with the only remaining utensil you can find – a spoon – while a 5 year old faceplants into your mashed potatoes.

Everyone is talking over everyone else. It’s a comforting sound actually – boisterous laughs, loud yelling and the joyful screams of kids running around and around the house. Somewhere in this is an older uncle singing Bollywood karaoke while the cousins hover over the turkey carcass picking at the crispy turkey skin and remaining greasy turkey bits that taste ah-mazing.

Holiday-Spiced Winter Sangria

That’s all I know. For lack of a better description, I am the epitome of a disaster at other dinner parties. At proper dinner parties. I laugh loudly, interrupt others and I’m eating with my hands when I should have been using my salad fork. I’m nervous there, I don’t know how to conduct myself. I’m out of my element but I think I manage to hold it together enough.

The holiday season calls for the perfect cocktail and this winter sangria is where it’s at! Whether you’re trying to embrace a crazy holiday dinner like ours or you’re sitting through a quiet dinner for 4 people, it still calls for a good drink. This holiday-spiced sangria smells of cinnamon, orange and vanilla and will definitely carry you through the holiday season. The smell of the simple syrup coming from the kitchen is enough to warm up the house and remember what the holidays are really about.

Winter flavours combined with a refreshing sangria cocktail, including cinnamon, star anise, orange and vanilla.

- Fruit for garnish – orange, apple, pomegranate ariles and mint sprigs

- Place the ingredients for the simple syrup into a small saucepan and heat over medium heat. Let it simmer until it thickens slightly then remove from heat and let it cool.
