A week ago I decided I wanted to attempt cutting wine and coffee from my diet. They are a waste of calories and I need to start cutting back. I thought I would rather give those two up than chocolate, cheese or butter.
Yeah that was a stupid idea.
I feel like over the last seven years I have either been pregnant or nursing so I could not drink during the holidays. Each year I watch my friends and family enviously consume seasonal cocktails, spike eggnog or fruity champagne drinks at our holiday get togethers.
This year I'm living it up!
Eggnog spiked with liquor, prosecco or champagne punches, festive cranberry cocktails.... you name I am going to drink it. You better believe I will be a fun time on Thankgsicing, Christmas and New Years.
To kick my holiday drinking off, I'm going with a holiday inspired white sangria. Now sangria is something I only have in the summer. But why not include some seasonal winter flavors? The rosemary and pomegranate add a fun flavor combo as well as add great holiday color to your drink.
