Pomegranate Apple Cider Sangria

What’s a Thanksgiving dinner without great cocktails on hand? Our friend Tanya Bates of Extra For Avocado created this Pomegranate Apple Cider Sangria – perfect for making ahead of time and catering to a large crowd. The classic fall flavour of apple cider combined with citrus and star anise makes this an instant Thanksgiving classic. Mix up a pitcher for dinner this year and your guests will be raving for weeks to come!
