This sangria celebrates the seasonal pomegranates. We are the lucky recipients of many freshest fruits from our dear neighbor’s backyard. We enjoyed baskets of peaches, blood oranges and plums all summer long:) Pomegranates is the latest addition to that long list!

Sangria is an alcoholic punch traditionally made with red wine and chopped fruits. It needs to be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator for the flavors to macerate. So, sangrias are the perfect drink, if you are going to host a dinner party!

Pomegranate sangria is just a bottle of white Zinfandel, triple sec and pomegranate juice (I used POM wonderful), fresh pomegranate seeds, orange slices, lemon slices, apple slices and warm cinnamon and cloves stirred together in a pitcher and set aside in the refrigerator for a few hours.
