Cranberry Orange Beer Sangria

Sangria, beergria, punch. Whatever you want to name your large batch cocktails, this one should be on your list of "to make for the next party." I've realized over the past few years that I love sangrias because I love the act of sharing a great cocktail with my loved ones. That's true of all cocktails I make, but large batch cocktails allow for more mingling as a hostess and less bartending. I made this cranberry orange beer sangria back in November when I hosted my sisters birthday party. She's a huge beer fan so the entire party was beer themed. More on that tomorrow. 

My taste preferences have shifted away from beer in the past few years. Every once in a while I enjoy popping open a nice cool beer and sipping away. To no surprise, I enjoy a flavorful craft beer –– which Kansas City is growing in almost daily.

But one of the brightest craft breweries in Kansas City, goes by the name of Boulevard. And I'm going to assume that they do what all craft breweries do, pump out delicious seasonal brews for your enjoyment. Which should make it easy to find a replacement if this particular beer is not readily available to you. Ok now, get to it. Scroll down so that you can make this recipe. 

P.S. this recipe is incredibly easy to make. So curl your hair, or take a few minutes to relax before your party. This is a no stress cocktail.
