Apple Cider Winter Sangria

 Happy Holidays Lovelies!

I hope everyone's Thanksgiving was wonderful! Mine was filled with wonderful food, plenty of family, and some fun board games! My mom and I made lots of classic family recipes this year to work on a family cookbook, so there was no shortage of food photography either! While this recipe isn't from my grandmother's recipe box, I've been making a winter sangria for Thanksgiving day for years. It's not just for Thanksgiving, though, this recipe would be so perfect for Christmas, New Years, or any special day this winter! It's not too sweet, but it's so flavorful and refreshing with the taste of wonderful winter fruit. There's one caveat, though; it's dangerously easy to drink! Be sure to prepare this the night before so the fruit flavors have all night to infuse into the wine. When you try this I'm sure you'll be as hooked as I am on sangria (however, beware, because after having this homemade sangria each year sangria from bars and restaurants never seems to compare!).
