It is a common belief that Sangria is only to be enjoyed out on the deck, on a warm summer evening (preferably by the beach) with family and friends around. While I wish that I could be back in summertime, enjoying that Sangria by the beach right about now, it is important to acknowledge great winter Sangrias as well. Below is one winter Sangria recipe that pairs perfectly with an evening of family and friends sitting by the fireplace as snow falls outside your window!
While your family gatherings may not be as picture perfect as the one I just described (don’t worry my family isn’t straight out of a Christmas movie either) it is still a great recipe to serve during the holidays!
