National Sangria Day is Sunday, December 20, and what better way to celebrate than with Fiona Elle’s @cokctailswinthmenyc‘s Holiday Red Wine Sangria!

But wait… doesn’t it seem a little strange that Sangria, a quintessential warm-weather drink, is annually celebrated on December 20? Here at Wine365 headquarters, we believe there is never a wrong time for a refreshing beverage; and it doesn’t hurt that this fruit-filled drink also happens to be a perfect cocktail to prepare for your next Zoom happy hour or virtual holiday party!

Fiona Elle’s Holiday Red Sangria Recipe:


  • 6 oz Red Wine of choice (in the above picture Fiona uses Caposaldo Wine)
  • 1 oz of brandy
  • 2 oz of cranberry juice
  • 1 oz of lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz of cinnamon syrup
  •  garnish with fruits (cranberries, green apples, oranges)

Cheers to making spirits bright with this delicious recipe!
