Every celebration needs a deliciously refreshing cocktail or punch as part of a hot Australian Christmas feast. There’s no doubt about it, and even better if it fits right into the festive Christmas theme.
I’ve been a long time lover of sangria and after being gifted a few bottles of the new 5 Seeds Lower Sugar Cider I began dreaming up a Christmassy twist on the original that would be sure to please everyone’s palates on Christmas Day.
This sangria is full of flavour, fresh, fruity and festive all in one. It’s easy to put together and you can substitute other berries you find in store to tickle your fancy.
Using cider in place of wine gives the sangria a zesty summery kick and believe me, it will make everyone happy!
The best thing about 5 Seeds Lower Sugar Cider is the refreshing zingy flavour. It’s not too sweet, isn’t filled with artificial flavours and tastes more like a glass of bubbles, making it perfect for my Christmas Sangria recipe.
