Winter Sangria

Yesterday we celebrated my daughter's college graduation with a little come and go party. We wanted something festive to drink, so she found this Winter Sangria on Pinterest. Of course, being me I had to alter it a bit. It was a huge hit! So here's my variation.

1 pear, sliced and seeded
4 clementines, sliced thinly
1 apple, sliced and seeded
1 cup pomegranate arils
1/4 cup raw sugar (demerara)
1 cinnamon stick
1 bottle (25 oz.) sparkling pomegranate juice
1 cup orange juice
1 bottle sparkling white grape juice
1 bottle sparkling red grape juice

In the bottom of a large pitcher, combine fruits, sugar, and cinnamon stick. Pour in pomegranate juice and orange juice. Stir well, cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least 6 hours. To serve remove cinnamon stick and mix in sparkling grape juices. May be served chilled or over ice.

It really was quite tasty and refreshing with the blend of winter fruits. A nice change of pace for holiday festivities.

Happy eating! (or drinking!)
