Simple Homemade Holiday Sangria

Sangria is one of my favorite warm-weather drinks, but with a few additional, seasonal ingredients and holiday spices, you can turn a summer staple into a simple holiday favorite.

To stay within your holiday budget while maintaining high quality, opt for an inexpensive Tetra-Pak carton of CalNaturale cabernet sauvignon. It's a rich, full-bodied red made with organically grown grapes from the Pasos Robles Appellation.

At $12.99 a carton, it's a reasonably-priced wine made from organic grapes that's great for drinking on its own or using as a base for holiday sangria.

What I love about sangria is that it's such a customizable drink that can take different forms depending on the ingredients you like. Pomegranate seeds or juice are great for winter sangria and offer a little extra texture and flavor.

Choose your favorite fruits (think raspberries, strawberries, pineapples, apples, oranges, mangoes, peaches, pears) and juices to combine with your wine and throw a few dashes of holiday spices in to set the holiday mood inside your glass of goodness.
