Cheers to the holidays, friends!
Christmas is next week! How did that creep up so fast? If you're anything like me, you're frantically planning your holiday get togethers, trying to find the perfect (and easiest) recipes to serve your family and friends. When it comes to cocktail hour, my family takes their drinks very seriously. Instead of stocking an entire bar, this year I'm going straight for buckets of sangria to serve.
Any holiday festivities you have planned NEED this sangria. It's full of the traditional holiday flavors you know and love, plus it brings an extra festive element to any get together with the fresh cranberries and cinnamon sticks floating about.
You'll be hard pressed to find anyone who will turn down a second glass... Or third.
INSTRUCTIONS: Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher ad refrigerate for at least 5 to 6 hours before serving (ideally overnight).

It's time to get some Bubbly Thanksgiving Sangria up in this holiday week! With all the family and friends coming to town, the recipes being created and the nuttiness that is Thanksgiving, this sangria recipe is the magical recipe to make sure you survive.
This sangria pair perfectly with turkey day and all the fixings that go along with that tasty meat. It's bubbly, light, and festive so it's a great opener for the whole dinner. It pairs with practically anything and boosts the holiday mood like crazy!
So pour a couple of bottles into a pitcher, whip up the deliciousness, and kick back to enjoy everything that is Thanksgiving.
