Ingredients

  • 750 mL Chardonnay, chilled (Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi)
  • 750 mL lemon lime soda, chilled
  • 2 cups ice cubes
  • 2 whole oranges, washed and sliced 1/4 inch thick (ends discarded)
  • 2 whole lemons, washed and sliced 1/4 inch thick (ends discarded)
  • 4 whole limes, washed and sliced 1/4 inch thick (ends discarded)
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 6-8 whole mint leaves
  • rosemary sprigs, for garnish - optional

Instructions

  • Spear 5-6 whole, fresh cranberries onto a cocktail skewer.  Set aside.  (Optional)
  • Place the fruit into a large pitcher in this order - orange slices, lemon slices, lime slices, 1 cup of the cranberries, and 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds.  Top with 2 cups of ice.
  • Pour the wine into the pitcher, followed by the soda.  Stir together, but just a few stirs - the more you stir, the more carbonation you will lose from the soda.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of pomegranate seeds to each glass.  Insert a cranberry cocktail skewer.  Add a sprig of rosemary for garnish if using. You may also add a slice of lime for garnish.  
  • When ready to serve, pour the cold Christmas Citrus Cocktail into the glasses and serve immediately.

Notes

One serving is equal to 1/2 cup.
