‘Tis the season for big pitchers of festive sangria! Wine, fruit, vodka, and a splash of fizzy soda <---Bringing joy to holiday festivities everywhere. Sangria is the batch cocktail that doesn't disappoint. It's layers of boozy fun for every adult girl and boy. Just look at that gorgeous ruby red color... If that doesn't convince you to make this Cranberry Orange Sangria, then I have no idea what will. Batch cocktails are your best friend during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Trust me on this one, folks. Do yourself a huge favor this year and make a pitcher of this sangria. Not only will it save you time, but you won't have to double as host and bartender. You deserve to mingle with your guests and enjoy the gathering you put forth so much time and effort to plan. Cranberry Orange Sangria

Let’s talk about the flavor combo: cranberry and orange. It’s only the best of all the holiday flavor duos. It’s tart. It’s sweet. It’s everything.

I used a combination of crisp white wine, tart cranberry juice, fresh-squeezed orange juice, and orange-flavored vodka to create this festive pitcher of joy. The only work involved is adding all of the ingredients to your favorite glass pitcher and giving it a stir. Right before you’re ready to serve, add the Mist Twst Cranberry and Mist Twst Lemon Lime to give it a refreshing burst of effervescence. Sangria wouldn’t be sangria without its crisp, bubbly fizz. Each bottle is made with a splash of real juice!
