This festive and colourful Holiday Sangria is a sweet wine cocktail loaded with fruit and spice. Make this budget-friendly drink ahead of time and then pull the pitcher out of the fridge just as guests are arriving.
Hi there! I’m Amanda from Life at Cloverhill. We had a party last weekend with some of our family and friends, and I used some of the appetizer and cookie recipes in my Holiday Guide for the party.
When thinking of a fun drink to make ahead and serve our guests, I knew I needed to spice up my favourite summertime drink for wintertime. Sangrias are a fantastic cocktail for making a big batch and this holiday sangria recipe with cinnamon was a real crowd pleaser. I could have easily made twice as much, and the great thing about a recipe like this, is that you double, or triple, it very easily.
When picking the best red wine to use for this sangria, the secret is picking something slightly sweet and cheap. Pick up a bottle for under $10 to make this an inexpensive party punch for your holiday gatherings.
Allowing your festive sangria to rest is important to giving it a sweet and full flavour. It allows the fruit to infuse the wine and sweeten up the sangria, while letting the flavours mellow out.
