Pomegranate sangria is the best winter sangria ever! It comes in the form of delicious pomegranate vanilla sangria with lots of red wine and brandy. It's perfect for the cooler months and it will warm you right up.
1large navel orange,sliced
1large apple, chopped
the arils of 1 pomegranate
1 1/2bottles of red wine,I bought a Spanish red wine
2cupsof sparkling pomegranate soda,bought mine at Trader Joe’s
1/2cupsugar,possibly more depending on your wine
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.
