It's a Wonderful Sangria

By Stephen Phillips

Keep your New Year's Eve party guests smiling with a flavor-filled, spiced-pear sangria with a champagne twist. I recommend you prepare this the day before the big event. It's well worth it.

Serves 8-10


1 bottle chilled dry white wine

1 bottle chilled champagne (modestly good champagne will do)

3 oz. Damiana liqueur (herbal liqueur with citrus and vanilla flavors)

2 freshly sliced pears

2 apples (sliced and cored)

20 whole cloves

1 tsp. ground nutmeg

In a large pitcher, add the pears, apples, cloves and nutmeg.
Add the Damiana liqueur and stir.
Add the wine and stir gently.
Refrigerate overnight.When you're ready to serve, pour in your champagne, stirring it slowly within the mixture. Serve in an ice-filled wineglass.
