A Seasonal Take on a Summer Classic

While Sangria may be more of a warm weather beverage, I found this delicious recipe that takes this summer classic into the holiday season. I’m a huge fan of shopping in season so right now my kitchen is stocked with my favorite fall fruits, making this a go-to recipe for me when entertaining friends.

We only have a few weeks left of fall, so impress your friends and family at your holiday dinner party before apples, pears and cider is a thing of the past and it’s all about the warm beverages. Winter is coming… xoxo, Whit
