Drinks: Bright Sips for Dark Days

Add effervescence to your next party with sparkling sangria.

Sparkling Winter Sangria

  • 1 cup St. Germain liqueur
  • ½ cup superfine sugar
  • ¾ cup green grapes
  • 2 tangerines
  • ½ small ruby red grapefruit
  • 2 bottles Prosecco, chilled (I use Lamarca prosecco)

In a medium bowl, combine St. Germain liqueur and superfine sugar; whisk together until sugar dissolves. Add green grapes, tangerines, and ruby red grapefruit; toss to combine. Refrigerate until chilled, 30 minutes or up to 3 hours.

To serve, spoon some fruit and about 1 tablespoon liquid into each glass. Top with chilled prosecco. —Tana Wold, City of Eden Prairie Liquor Stores.
