Summer Sangria Recipe

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

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.
