I’m always on the prowl for amazing cocktail recipes for holiday get togethers. An amazing holiday cocktail has to be easy to throw together, PRETTY, crowd pleasing, and delicious. Sangrias are always perfect because they’re fun, fruity, and oh so tasty. Most people love them, so it’s a perfect party drink. Sometimes sangria can be costly because of all that wine you need to make big pitchers, but I have a solution!! USE BEER!

This Festive Grapefruit Beer Sangria is one of my favorite sips to make for loved ones at the holidays and it only needs 4 ingredients; Leinenkugel’s Grapefruit Shandy, orange juice, simple syrup, and club soda! Garnish with some fruit and you’re in business. A little bit tart, a little bit sweet, a huge hit. This FESTIVE GRAPEFRUIT BEER SANGRIA is simple, delicious, and so pretty!

I have made other grapefruit sangrias before and this is hands down my favorite. In the ones I’ve made in the past, grapefruit juice is used as one of the main components. I love grapefruit juice, but it can cause the overall drink to be tart or bitter which is not always the best crowd pleasing solution. Using Leinenkugel’s Grapefruit Shandy is the perfect alternative because it has such a bright bold flavor without being bitter. It pairs so beautifully with the orange juice and club soda.
