Pomegranate Cider Sangria

When we were up in Boston for Thanksgiving, I was super pumped to find a variety of cider flavors. They had the standard apple and then on top of that - cranberry, pear and pomegranate, I immediately ditched my plan for apple cider mimosas for Thanksgiving and went with a pomegranate cider sangria instead. 

There are not enough words to describe how delicious this ended up being. plus, it was so very simple to throw together in a quick moment! All you would have to do if you couldn't find the pomegranate cider all you would have to do is add a cup of pomegranate juice to the mix! And I often times make my own sangria, but for this instance, the sangria wine worked perfectly! Less steps to worry about and you can grab a bottle for less than $10.

I also think this would be a great choice for any holiday gathering or even for a New Years Party! You can make a big batch of this and it goes a long way! 

Next time I think I want to try this warmed up, would be perfect to drink while I binge watch Hallmark movies...and drive my husband crazy;)

To really drive home how delicious this mother in law rarely drinks alcohol. She had two glasses. That is all you need to know to run and make this. Soon!

Pomegranate Cider Sangria

1 bottle sangria. 
1/2 gallon pomegranate cider 
1 cup spiced rum 
sliced apples

*champagne (optional)

In a large pitcher, place the apples and pomegranates. Pour in the sangria, cider and rum. Stir thoroughly and chill for at least an hour. The second glass I had, I filled my glass half way and then topped with champagne. I got the best of both worlds when it came to my mimosa addition;)
