Pomegranate Sangria Recipe with IZZE Sparkling Pomegranate (perfect for Friendsgiving!)

Raise your hand if your friends are among what you’re most thankful for! 🙋🏼 Friendsgiving has become the perfect occasion to toast to incredible friendships and reflect on all that you’re grateful for and the fun memories that have been made over the past year. Each year I always love getting together with friends for a little Friendsgiving celebration before everyone heads out of town for family gatherings and other travels (I swear, SF becomes a ghost town).

While I enjoy entertaining, I’m always on the lookout for new ways to keep things simple to avoid any added stress or tons of prepwork. One of my favorite ways to please a crowd? With a large batch cocktail! This year I whipped up a really easy, but yummy sangria recipe inspired by my favorite flavor of IZZE Sparkling Juice, Pomegranate.

The deep red hue is perfectly festive for your table scape and best of all, it takes less than 5 minutes to whip up and can be prepped in advance to keep your guests’ glasses full throughout your celebrations without being stuck playing bartender all night with custom cocktails. Here’s the scoop:

    I love the look of this sangria! So colorful and festive. I loooove Friendsgiving! We had that a lot when we were younger. We still incorporate friends into Thanksgiving, especially those who are on their own, or who don’t have family nearby. So fun!

  • This looks soooo thirst-quenching. I love anything pomegranate – it’s my favorite!
