Looking for a last-minute holiday party treat? This white sangria by Aliza Sokolow is easy to make, festive and has just the right amount of sweetness. Package it up for a more creative hostess gift than a simple botle of wine, or serve it at your own for a high-impact alcohol offering. Here’s how it’s done:

3 green apples, sliced
3 pears, sliced into bite-sized pieces
1 lemon
1 lime
3 tbsp sugar
3 shots calvados
1 cup cranberries
1 bottle dry white wine
