In case you run out of beer this weekend and wanted to try an alternative beverage while watching the big Seahawks game, we received a suggestion from a California PR company to make sangria.

Here’s what they wrote us:

“Calling all Seattle Seahawks Fans! Planning a Playoff Party story for all your Seattle Seahawks fans? Let your audience know that we have a delicious Seahawks Sangria recipe!

The below recipe is made with the organic & eco-friendly CalNaturale Cabernet Sauvignon that comes in Tetra-Pak packaging, which makes it easy to bring over for parties. And, at only $12.99 per 1 liter carton, you can serve a large crowd for less!

Go Seahawks!

Seahawks Sangria
Prep: 20 Minutes (Plus Chilling)
Serves: 10

1 Carton of red CalNaturale Cabernet Sauvignon wine
½ cup fresh pomegranate seeds
1 Navel orange, halved and sliced
1 Granny smith apple, cored and thinly sliced into wedges
1 ½ Tbsp pure maple syrup
3 cups seltzer, chilled
1 Cup ginger ale, chilled

In a pitcher, combine the wine, pomegranate seeds, orange, apple and maple syrup; refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight. Stir in the seltzer and ginger ale. Serve over ice.”

We think this sounds like a fine beverage, only better with a fine Cabernet grown and produced here in the Seahawk’s home state of Washington!!!

Still, it’s a fun idea to start planning for football-watching snacks, so let us know if you’ve got a favorite recipe or take-out item.

For now, I’m sticking to beer, Washington state brewed of course!! Go Hawks!
