Sangria

This year, we will be welcoming the holidays with a pitcher of sangria – it is quick, easy, delicious and super flavorful. Oh boy, when I think of all these Christmas flavors gathered in one big pitcher, topped with a few ice cubes and a couple of mint leaves, I wish Christmas lasts for at least a month, so I can make this recipe with different fruits and wine every day. Well, I don’t intend to sound like a drunk, I am just saying that this is probably one of the greatest girly drinks ever. Think about it – there is like 300 ml. of white wine in one whole big pitcher, you can’t ever have too much of it, cause it’s light, light, light, just for girls.
Cheers!
