National Sangria Day: Celebrate Christmas early with this winter sparkling sangria

Learn how to make classic cocktails on ‘Fox & Friends’

Capitol Lounge bartender Farrell Parker teaches the hosts how to make some classic cocktails.

Dec. 20 is National Sangria Day, and Skyy Vodka has a sweet and tart recipe you’ll want to test out before you have holiday visitors over.

Skyy has named the bubbly fruit-based cocktail the “Winter Sparkling Sangria,” and it includes blood orange-flavored vodka, cranberry and lime juice and sparkling wine.

The spirits brand designed the recipe with its namesake vodka in mind, but you can use any blood orange vodka or wine you might have in your home bar. If you’re not much of a sparkling wine fan, Skyy says you can switch it out for champagne or prosecco. The company recommends Cinzano Prosecco, another Campari America-owned brand.
