In times of celebration, there's nothing better than a cold, bubbly drink. When serving a crowd, having a cocktail recipe that can be made by the pitcher is the right way to go. Luckily, we have just the right cocktail recipe for you: pomegranate sangria.
This pomegranate sangria is perfectly sweet with just the right fruit and wine combination. It is everything a pitcher cocktail should be, and more. This sangria features a few of my favorite things: fresh oranges, pomegranate juice and seeds, white wine, and my favorite sparkling Moscato. Combined with some orange liqueur, they make up an awesome sangria. For the fruitiest flavor, make it ahead and refrigerate until ready to serve. This will allow for the fruit and mint to marinate in the wine and liqueur mixture. Wait to pour in the sparkling wine until you're ready to serve. This will ensure the sangria is nice and bubbly the moment you serve it.
