Blood Orange and Pomegranate Sparkling Sangria
Happy Monday!! January is finally upon us, we've been so lucky this winter having little to no snow. And sadly the weather tides have turned and I'm so not mentally ready for it. This sangria can add a little brightness to your snowy and sad Monday.
Slightly adapted from Cookie + Kate.
-3 medium to large blood oranges
-Arils (seeds) from 1 pomegranate
-¼ cup Triple Sec
-¼ cup simple syrup
-1 bottle Prosecco
Juice two of the blood oranges and then slice the remaining blood orange into thin rounds. In a pitcher, combine the blood orange juice, blood orange slices, pomegranate arils and Triple Sec. Let the sangria sit in the fridge for an hour or so to help everything really blend together nicely.
When you're ready to serve, pour in the Prosecco. Taste and the simple syrup to taste -- I like sweet drinks, so I used all of mine, but you can tailor the drink however you'd like.
A nice bright and sweet drink to get rid of the winter blues. Both blood oranges and pomegranates are in season right now, this can easily be adjusted based on whatever wine/liquor you have on hand. Cheers.
