Whether you’re decking the halls or not, winter is coming here in West Michigan, so why not have a delicious Winter Sangria to cozy up with? We’re loving this simple Winter Sangria recipe, which was inspired by a few Sangrias we’ve tried along the way.
1 bottle of red wine (we used Stella Rosa Black, which has a nice effervescence to it)
1/4 cup of Brandy
1/4 cup of Agave Nectar (found in our cocktail mixer section)
1 cup of frozen fruit (we used Michigan Farm to Freezer brand’s West Michigan Smoothie Blend, which features Michigan-grown fruit! This blend has pitted tart cherries, blueberries, & apple slices. Yum!)
Juice of 1/2 a lime
2 cinnamon sticks
Combine all ingredients in a pitcher, let sit anywhere from an hour up to overnight. The longer it sits, the more those delicious flavors will combine! ‘Tis the season!
