Sparkling Pear Sangria

IMG_7863

Happy New Years everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and are now ready for an even better 2015. I have lots of ideas for the new year but first I want to share the last recipe I made in 2014. I love sangria- there are endless flavor combinations and I have yet to try a combination I don’t like. And this sparkling pear sangria is everything I hoped it would be. It is delicious. It is bubbly. It is celebratory. It can also be made in advance, making it the perfect drink to celebrate any special occasion- perhaps a birthday, a new job or even a new year.

2014 definitely went out with a bang- a delicious and sparkling bang. Here’s to an even more delicious 2015. Cheers!
