Healthiest Sangria Ever

December 6, 2015 by admin

You know what we love about the holiday season? The happy buzz we get from sipping cocktails with family and friends, the endless days of festivities. It’s just such a joyful time to be.

The only problem: You may be pouring on the sugar and calories if you’re not paying attention to what you’re sipping through at parties.

BUT there’s ALWAYS a healthier solution yes?

So we’ve done a healthy makeover of the refreshing sangira without sacrificing any of the buzzy delights!

Start with a red wine base, which contains healthy antioxidants & then add fiber-rich fruits like berries, pears and oranges. Top it off with sparking water instead of the usual soda or syrup.

As healthy as it sounds, it’s still alcohol and should be enjoyed in moderation.
