Happy New Year!

Below is my Boozy Fruit Sangria recipe. I’m not a chef or recipe tester so this “recipe” is more of a suggestion. You can use any seasonal fruit, wine, or soaking spirit you prefer. I’ve made this several times and everyone loved it.

Boozy Fruit Recipe

1 Honey Crispy apple (medium-large, washed and unpeeled)

1 Firm pear (I use green for the contrast and seasonal color)

Candied Ginger Simple Syrup

Lemon Zest and juice from ¼ of a lemon

1 Cup of your favorite clear or light-colored liquor — I use Puerto Rican Rum

A bottle of your favorite wine


  1. Dice the pears and apples into small pieces (your desired size), keep them in separate bowls, and quickly sprinkle and toss them with lemon juice. Here is a dicing tutorial
