Mulled Wine Winter Sangria

A winter season cocktail must!

I love hosting friends and coming up with new ideas for food and cocktails we can all enjoy, even if it’s a tiny Covid friendly gathering! It’s always fun for me to brainstorm at least 1 thing we haven’t done that would be a good fit with our plans we all can enjoy. We had a few friends over to celebrate the holidays, and this mulled wine winter sangria was that thing! I already can’t wait to make it again.
