- 1 bottle white wine
- pear juice (recipe below for homemade)
- 1 1/2 cups apple cider
- 1 cup cranberries
- 4 oranges, thinly sliced
- 4 J-GEN powder mix packets
- cinnamon sticks and green sprigs, to garnish
- 3 cups water
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 3 Bosc pears, peeled
- 3 cinnamon sticks
Boil water, sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon sticks, and pears in a saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves, then add J-GEN packets and stir.
Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until pears are tender, turning occasionally, about 15 minutes.
Let pears cool in syrup/juice and refrigerate (can be made ahead of time). You only need the juice: you can eat the poached pears or slice and add to the sangria.
In a large pitcher, combine all the sangria ingredients.
Stir and then place in the fridge until chilled.
Garnish with cinnamon sticks and herbs (rosemary, mint, etc) enjoy!
