Sangria is a must around the holidays! This sounds delicious!

I cannot wait to make this for our guests! Well, who says I have to wait? ;-)
    Becky Hardin
    Exactly! You might want to test it 1 or 10 times before Christmas. You know...just to make sure its not poisonous :)

I'm allergic to Apples, what can I use to replace the Apple Cider?
    Becky Hardin
    I'm not sure but I think it would still be tasty with the cider left out. You could use a different type of sparkling cider as well. Enjoy!
JAdE
Soundz delicioso!! I wonder if it can be made a few days ahead of time & be ok
    Becky Hardin
    I would say up to two days in the fridge would be fine. Wait to add the fresh fruit and just be sure to stir once in a while and before serving. Enjoy!
Jess
Where did you get that glassware? It's gorgeous.
    Becky Hardin
    Thank you! I'm pretty sure I got it from Crate and Barrel. Have a fabulous Thanksgiving!

I made this for Christmas eve. It is one of the best red sangrias that I have had! Loved the spiced flavor from the spiced apple cider! Couldn't find the gluten free vodka, which would have been good for some family members.
    Becky Hardin
    YAY! So happy to hear that. Happy New Year! Sorry you couldn't find the GF vodka, that stinks! A lot of vodkas are still GF depending on how they're made, I should update the post to reflect that. Thanks for saying hi :) :)
