Pomegranate Vanilla Sangria

Yield: serves 4? (depends on how much you drink!)

Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

1 large navel orange, sliced
1 large apple, chopped
1 large pear, chopped
the arils of 1 pomegranate
2 cinnamon sticks
2 vanilla beans
1 1/2 bottles of red wine (I bought a Spanish red wine)
2 cups of sparkling pomegranate soda (bought mine at Trader Joe’s)
1/2 cup brandy
1/2 cup sugar (possibly more depending on your wine)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Directions:

Add orange slices, apples, pears, cinnamon sticks and pomegranate arils to the bottom of a big pitcher. Pour wine, pomegranate juice/soda, brandy, sugar and vanilla extract over top. Scrape vanilla beans out of their pods and add to the mix. Then throw the entire empty vanilla beans in. Mix with a giant spoon to really combine everything.

Place in the fridge for about 1 hour before serving. Taste to determine if you’d like more sugar, and if so – add it! Spoon some of the fruit into glasses before pouring, then add ice and sangria on top.

Note: If you can’t find the pomegranate soda, I would sub 1 1/2 cups of pomegranate juice + 1/2 cup ginger ale or club soda. Taste before adding your sugar in case it is super sweet.
