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!
