Looking for an easy cocktail to whip up for your holiday party this year? This sangria recipe is your best bet. Not only does it look and taste festive, but it also can be made in a big batch, which means you don’t have to play bartender all night to your guests. Win-win!

Seriously, making sangria couldn’t be any simpler. All you have to do is mix some red wine, sparkling apple cider, vodka, cranberry juice, and spiced apple cider in a large pitcher; garnish the pitcher with sliced oranges and apples, fresh cranberries, and sprigs of rosemary; and then serve!

To keep things extra easy, place the pitcher of sangria out on your bar cart, along with a bucket of ice (and tongs to grab it) and some pretty glasses. When guests are ready for a cup, they can simply fill their glass with ice and pour the sangria in. Cheers to that!
