As seen in my KTVK Your Life Arizona segment today, here is the recipe for the sangria. It is actually an autumn recipe but why not do sort of a little Christmas in July twist today since the world is so upside down anyway?! I hope everyone is hanging in there. Here is the cheer up summer Sangria tasty recipe.
Last October I served this to my gal pals and they asked for seconds…and thirds. Everyone commented how unique, refreshing and tasty this particular sangria tasted. If you are not a sangria fan, you may be surprised that you like this one because it is not near as sweet as traditional sangria. Here is the easy recipe that marinates overnight, too. I think another reason this is so delish is the pumpkin pie spice that is also included in the recipe. A big thank you to Hob Nob wine for sharing this recipe with me.
