Christmas Morning Punch (the adult version)

2 bottles of Riesling (Chateau Ste Michelle)
2 bottles of  Moscato (Grape & Vine and Sar Bee)
4 cups of Cranberry juice *not cocktail* (Nature’s Promise Naturals)
4 cups of Orange juice (Tropicana Pure)
2 cups Pineapple juice (Dole)
1 1/2 cup Chambord
1 cup Sweet Vermouth
1 cup Vodka (American Harvest)
5 (8 fl oz) cans Ginger Ale

1 Orange, sliced into rounds
1 bag of Cranberry

Add all ingredients except for the Ginger Ale soda. Let sit overnight preferably, but at least 4-5 hours before serving. Right before serving add the soda and stir. This sangria will need to be stirred throughout the night as the ingredients separate.

You’ll need a 2 1/2 gallon container for the sangria.

This Sangria was inspired by a picture I saw on Facebook (below). Initially I planned to only make 1 gallon since we’re not heavy drinkers, however I took the picture at face-value and actually bought real cranberry juice. Which made this sangria incredibly tart! But us humans are adaptable creatures, especially when it comes to alcohol, so I transferred the mix to my larger container and raided our liquor cabinet. It turned out pretty yummy!!!

I haven’t tried this myself yet, but if you’d like a 1 gallon (lower alcohol content) batch I suggest the below recipe. If you do let me know how it turns out!

1 bottle of Riesling
4 cups of Cranberry cocktail
4 cups of Orange juice 
2 cups Pineapple juice

1 Orange, sliced into rounds
Cranberries

Fill your glass 1/3 with Ginger Ale and the rest with the sangria mixture.

Tropical Sangria

I will admit this is not one of my prettier sangrias (it comes out looking like a vegetable-based health drink), however the taste more than makes up for it. This sangria is perfect for sitting next to the pool with a little umbrella in your class.
