Sangrias To Be Thankful For

The days are getting shorter, the weather is getting colder, and Thanksgiving and harvest decorations are replacing Halloween decorations. Yes, it is everyone’s favorite time of year! Now is when we like to sit by the fire, bundled up with layers and blankets, in the company of our best friends and family, over-indulging in the holiday eating and drinking. Stella Rosa Wines and signature Stella Rosa cocktails are obvious choices for your holiday Stellabrations (you can never go wrong!), but there are a few cocktails with Stella Rosa that are exceptionally festive this time of year.


Pomegranate and Orange Sangria (use Stella Rosa Rosso) – by adding pomegranate, oranges, cranberries, and a little bit of cinnamon to this Stella Rosa Rosso-based sangria, you’ve got yourself a real winner. Get the Pomegranate and Orange Sangria recipe here.



Honeycrisp Apple Sangria (Use Stella Rosa Rosso or Stella Rosa Black) – Grab a Stella Rosa Rosso or Stella Rosa Black and mix in some cinnamon, honeycrisp apples, apple cider, oranges, and lemons for this Honeycrisp Apple Sanria. It is truly a party with every sip! The recipe for you is right here.


UntitledApple Cider Sangria (Use Stella Rosa Moscato) – Similar to the Honeycrisp Apple Sangria above, this Apple Cider Sangria uses Stella Rosa Moscato instead of a red wine. Include honeycrisp apples, pears, and apple cider for this Thanksgiving-perfect cocktail. Recipe is here for you.


Remember that sangrias are best when the wines and fruits have mixed and mingled for some time before serving, so plan accordingly! You can always play around and try different fruits and ingredients to achieve the perfect taste for you, but these ingredients like cranberries, apples, apple cider, and pomegranate just scream holiday tradition favorites – which is why you ought to just give them a shot right now! Cheers!
