I love making our easy Red Wine Pomegranate Punch ahead of time so there’s more time to enjoy the party and spend less time behind the bar!
While most people I know reach for a beer on game day, I love to make a good cocktail for a crowd. It’s an easy way to have cocktails ready to go all day long without spending the whole game in the kitchen making drinks to order. One of my favorite pitcher cocktails is a punch. There are so many flavor combinations to try! Since the weather is still cold here, I went with a red wine based punch using a Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot blend.
This punch is full of deep flavors that balance perfectly with the fruit and get brightened up with a little fresh grapefruit juice. Our neighbors have a ruby red grapefruit tree and it’s like the best thing ever! I love that Frontera wine won’t break the bank and is a great red table wine to have at home. I usually make another pitcher during half-time when the girls are over, cause these bad boys go down dangerously easy!

If you like, you can top the sangria with a splash of club soda after you pour it into the glasses, for a little fizz.
