Well Folks, we made it. The last day of our Week of Holiday Cocktails.
Have y’all survived?
How’s the liver? :)
The last installment for the week is our White Cranberry Sangria. Cranberries always remind me of the holidays so why not use white cranberry juice in sangria? It turned out to be a lovely little cocktail to sip on for a daytime celebration or a casual get together. Tart, light, and a little bubbly from the last minute addition of soda water.
I have to admit, I had a helluva time testing and shaking up these goodies and I hope that it’s given you some fun ideas for your winter festivities. Thanks for hanging out for our Week of Holiday Cocktails — wishing you and your loved ones an amazing Holiday season!
Salute – dear Friends!
