Who says Sangria is just for warm weather??? Not me! I love a festive Sangria all year round.

Here is a really fun twist on a festive sangria that will have you refilling your glass! The twist….well, the twist is the cinnamon stick! It adds a delicious flavor punch that is unexpected and wonderful! You will love serving this at Thanksgiving and during the holidays.

This Sangria is so, so good! You must make it and let me know what you think!
