National Sangria Day!
The Holiday Season is here, but don't forget that this Today (December 20th) is it's own special holiday: National Sangria Day! Sangria is traditionally enjoyed in Spain and Portugal during the summer, but that doesn't mean you can't warm up a winter night with some sangria just the same. It comes in all sorts of varieties, allowing for ample creative flair, and since it's traditionally served in punch bowls, sangria makes a festive party punch that's as fun to look at as it is to drink. We've round up some of the best and most exciting Sangria recipes to enjoy once National Sangria Day comes around. 1) You Must Remember This
