During the holidays, I love to find new and creative ways to make fun cocktails and recipes! In this post, I will share with you a fun Holiday Rosé Sangria recipe and a step by step tutorial on how to assemble the perfect Charcuter-wreath. 🙂
For this board, I found beautiful magnolia leaves at Trader Joe’s and I decided to make those my base!
Once I’ve laid out the leaves as my base, I always like to add cheese first. For this board I used three different cheeses to add some variety. I used brie (cut into squares), white cheddar cheese (cubes), and a log cranberry goat cheese.
Next, we have the meats! I kept it simple for this wreath board and used salami and prosciutto for my two meats. I also rolled them to look like roses to add a fun look to the board! Mine aren’t the prettiest, but I think it adds something different.
Adding sweets elements to a board is a must, especially during the holidays! Butter cookies are simple and a fan favorite, so I made sure to add some of those throughout. Additionally I found a great mix of sweet almonds to sprinkle into the wreath.
Last but not least, the garnish! This is my favorite part, because everything comes together. I made some sugared cranberries and added those throughout the board. Then I lined the inside with rosemary sprigs for an added garnish to the ‘wreath’ look. Once you’ve completely your final touches, you are all set and ready to eat!
I love the look of candied cranberries to any holiday dish or drink, it adds a vibrant pop of color and that yummy touch of sweetness. Plus, they are super easy to make!
In a sauce pan, simmer the water and 1/2 cup of sugar. Once fully dissolved add cranberries. Stir for about one minute and then use a slotted spoon to place onto a cooling rack or plate. Let the cranberries dry for 45 minutes, and then sprinkle and roll the cranberries in remaining sugar.
Use the leftover syrup for the following holiday sangria recipe, or other cocktails you make!
I’m not the biggest fan of red wine sangria, so I created this recipe using a dry rosé. This sangria recipe is the perfect holiday sipper!
*Add as much or as little as you want, depending on strength and desired level of sweetness.
