Fruity sangria is a holiday hit

Try some sangria this holiday season. —Jenna Lambert

Nothing says “holiday” like a pretty glass filled with fruity sangria. By the glass or by the punch bowl, you’ll love this recipe and will want to serve it at your next winter potluck.

Holiday Sangria

2 oz apple brandy (I prefer Laird’s Straight Apple Brandy)
2 oz Prosecco (Ruffino does the trick)
1 oz cranberry juice
1 dash cinnamon
chopped green apples
fresh cranberries
fresh rosemary sprigs
1 dash orange bitters

Combine ingredients in an oversized wine glass filled with ice. For a lighter and less boozy drink, top with soda water. These proportions are measured for one cocktail, but this sangria is best served in a pitcher or punch bowl, to all of your closest friends. To keep the evanescence of the Prosecco intact when making this in a large batch, place a cold metal spoon in the pitcher as well. Enjoy and be merry!
