Happy National Sangria Day! Thanks to Hefty Slider Bags and Tiffani Thiessen (we all know her and LOVE her right!) we have an awesome Holiday Sangria Recipe with Festive Fruit Ice Cubes to share with you today! This recipe is not only a wonderful way to celebrate the holidays and National Sangria Day with friends (maybe drink at a holiday gift wrapping party) but it’s tasty all year round (think back porch sippin’ on a hot summer day).
This drink combines red wine, cinnamon, and seasonal flavors of orange and Honeycrisp apples for a delish finish. My personal addition would be a garnish of sugared cranberries and maybe toss in some cloves and warm it on the stove. Not only would it smell amazing, it’ll warm you up too!
How do you like to mix up your Sangria’s to celebrate National Sangria Day? Leave us a comment!
