Bubbly Winter Citrus Sangria


With 2015 coming to a close, I thought this would be the perfect time to take advantage of some bubbles and winter citrus to create the perfect New Years’ sangria! We’ve been having the dreariest weather here in the South, so I’m really into the vibrant color the grapefruit juice gives this fizzy drink.


This sangria really couldn’t be any easier. Just take a bottle of moscato (I used Barefoot’s Pink Moscato) and a bottle of sweet champagne. It can be any brand, but just make sure it’s sweet. The tartness of the grapefruit juice definitely needs something to balance it out. I added about 1 1/2 cups of fresh grapefruit juice, but you can go with bottled if you’d like. Just give all that a stir and add in your grapefruit and meyer lemon slices!

I think this sangria would be so fun on New Years’ Eve, or even the perfect way to ring in the new year with brunch on January 1st.

  1. This sangria is really beautiful, and so perfect for the season. I love those glasses, too. I keep seeing them on various blogs, and think that I need to just break down and pick up a set!
