Easy Sangria – Ginger Pear

Several years ago, our Biggest Little went out of town for a weekend of dirt biking and other fun adventures with Hubby. Part of their excursion included a visit to an epic candy shop.

My boy came back with a concoction of sweets for his brothers. Then he unwrapped a special tin of ginger-pear candies for me. Heart melt. The boy knows I’m smitten with all things dark chocolate and anything gingery. I still have that empty tin.

Ginger pear is a classic taste bud combination and it’s one of my favorites. From candy to tea. From cake to sangria.

Let’s camp a bit on that last one and sing praises for sangria, shall we? Many people favor sangria over all other cocktails. I get it…200%  get it.

Sangria can be red or white. Dreamy or lighthearted. Fruity, crisp, or sparkly. It’s the versatile, fun, and make-ahead drink.

The make-ahead part is always my favorite part. I prefer to relax and mingle, rather than stress over mixing drinks while holding conversations at the same time. I’m just not that talented.

Here’s how we pre-make this easy, delicious Ginger Pear Sangria…

    Do you usually put the powdered ginger in? Do more people seem to like it better with or without? I will be making this for Christmas Day.

      Hi, Jenny! Yes, I do usually put the powdered ginger in and mix it thoroughly. People who love the taste of ginger/ginger ale will like it; but if people are sensitive, you can just put a pinch into it. Hope you all love it! Merry Christmas!
