Holiday Sangria

I love Sangria and the sweetness it delivers!  My mother-in-law had me try a packaged Sangria where you only needed to add wine.  It was tasty, but I wanted to create my own version with fresh ingredients.  After some research, I came across an amazing recipe that I modified to my liking, and it was delicious!  Holiday Sangria is sweet and fruity, and absolutely perfect for the holidays!  I had Aubrey and her family over for dinner and a photo shoot, so we gave the drink a try.  We both love Moscato wine, so when I found this recipe, I knew it had to be a winner! Holiday Sangria is a great drink for the holidays, but it would also be refreshing in the hot summer months!

      It is simple syrup and I think you can find it near the drink mixes but you really don’t have to buy it. You can make it at home and have it on hand. You will just combine equal parts water and sugar and heat until sugar is dissolved. That’s it. Let us know what you think after you try it out.
