I love trying new Sangria recipes. I made this Sangria for Thanksgiving and I really liked it. This sangria recipe would be great for any holiday party. I served the sangria cold so that guests could serve themselves. The original recipe served the sangria warm which I think may be nice if you are having a small get together on a cold winter day. I would recommend making the sangria about 6-8 hours before the party. This will allow all the flavors to blend together. I find that if you make the sangria too far in advice, the fruit rinds will make the sangria too bitter. Hope you like!
