Holiday Pomegranate Sangria
Serves 6 — prep time: 10 min
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup cane sugar
4 slices fresh ginger root
1 bottle red wine
3 cups 100% pure pomegranate juice
1/2 cup brandy
1/8 cup 100% orange juice
1 large orange, sliced
1 green apple, cored and sliced
1/4 cup Crazy Fresh pomegranate arils, for garnish
Place the sugar, water and ginger slices in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, simmering until thick and syrupy. Remove the ginger, then let cool.
Place the syrup, red wine, pomegranate juice, brandy, orange juice in a large pitcher or punch bowl and stir to combine. Place in the fridge to rest, at least 2-3 hours.
Roughly an hour before serving, add in the sliced oranges, apples and seeds.
Serve over ice, with more fruit slices, if desired.
