This tart recipe uses all store cupboard (shop bought) ingredients, is super easy to make and comes together in a flash!

Sparkling Citrus Holiday Sangria Recipe

Sparkling Citrus Holiday Sangria Recipe

When it come to Holiday entertaining, it's always a great idea to serve a big-batch punch or signature cocktail that your guests can get stuck into straight away. Something that involves little effort, and maximum satisfaction is my motto.  So for my Silver & Blue Cocktail and Appetizers party I shared earlier in the week, I did just that.  Serving up a batch cocktail like this means you can prep it in advance and just forget about it, which in turn leaves you free to mingle and enjoy the party! Something we tend to forget sometimes at parties we host ourselves (sound familiar?) πŸ˜‰
