Last year we spent Thanksgiving with my family at my brother’s house. I wanted to bring something festive for everyone to drink so I concocted this Holiday Sangria by combining a spiced simple syrup along with lots of fruit and wine. It was a hit. Once you make the simple syrup, there’s not much else to the recipe. It comes together pretty easily and would make a really nice hostess gift to bring to any get-together this holiday season.
Turning this into a ‘gift’ is actually very easy. I saved a few empty wine bottles and picked up some very inexpensive wine toppers … that alone makes a very nice presentation but if you are creative and crafty (me, not so much, ha!) you could probably put together a nice label to tie around the bottle. Enjoy this recipe and share it with friends this holiday season!
