Bubbly White Wine Thanksgiving Sangria
This thanksgiving sangria is perfect to throw together for the holiday season and sure to impress any and all guests! It's made with white wine, fresh fruit, a bubble ginger beer for some fun added fizz. Whip up a big batch because this white wine cocktail gets even better with time!
Servings: 10 people
- 750 ml dry white wine I used Sauvignon blanc
- 25 oz ginger beer (sub. ginger ale or club soda)
- 1 cup orange juice
- 4 oz tequila any liquor will work
- orange slices to garnish (approx. 2 oranges)
- apple slices to garnish (approx. 1 apple)
- cinnamon sticks to garnish (approx. 4 sticks)
If serving immediately, fill a wide-mouthed pitcher with ice. If making ahead of time don't use ice yet as it will dilute the drink. Add the dry white wine, ginger beer, orange juice and tequila. The mixture will bubble with the ginger beer but will eventually settle down. Stir a few times with a stirrer to mix.
Add the orange and apple slices along with the cinnamon sticks and stir one more time to push some of the pieces down into the drink.
Serve the sangria with a ladle or small cup for pouring. I like to have a separate bowl with some extra orange and apple slices and cinnamon sticks so guests can garish their drink. If you made the sangria ahead of time, also have an ice bucket next to the pitcher so people can pour the sangria over ice when ready.
Mocktail : To make this sangria non-alcoholic, omit the tequila and swap the bottle of wine and with 1 cup of water. This will dilute the ginger beer and orange juice a tad so it's not as sweet but there is still some bubbles and fizz to make it feel like the real deal. Kids will also love to add in fresh fruit!
