I know, I know. It's JANUARY! Why the heck am I posting a sangria recipe that really should have been saved for the summer? Well, one of the perks of living in Florida is the winter weather. In other words, there is no winter weather! lol I spent the day in Clearwater with family and caught this beautiful sunset which inspired today's recipe. I'm hoping it will bring some warmth to our northern friends. :-)
*This sangria takes five to 10 minutes to assemble in a large pitcher. Take the time to prepare it in the morning so the sangria has several hours to develop its fruity flavor. Pull it out when dinner is ready to serve that evening.
