A holiday get-together isn’t complete without a good cocktail. I’m not a huge fan of liquors, so if I get to choose, I usually opt for a sangria of some sort. I love wine or champagne, and they’re so easy to make festive with whatever is currently in season.
This Winter White sangria could quite possibly be my new favorite winter sangria. I’m all about whites in the winter: snow, white pants (I disregard the Labor Day rule, such a rebel), and white wine/champagne. And although most people choose a hearty red wine or red sangria to stay warm in the winter, I’ll drink a good, refreshing champagne cocktail any day.
Using champagne and St. Germain liqueur, you mix in some citrus fruits for a fancy, colorful beverage. And we only broke one of the champagne glasses while drinking it. That’s a win in my family 🙂
