I love a seasonal sangria. The way I see it, it's just another wine pairing. Right? Since it is Christmas time, I wanted this one to not only resemble the holiday flavors but also the colors. If you ask me, it is simply beautiful.
The beauty of the basic Sangria recipe is that it's as delicious as it is easy and it only gets better as you spice it up with your own creative culinary additions! Citrus, berries, peaches, kiwi and of course red wine make this a true crowd-pleaser.
