Drinking this Sangria is like drinking Christmas! If you want to feel festive, or if the holidays passed already and you miss it, definitely make a batch of this easy, hot sangria and enjoy the holidays. There is something magical in this combination of cinnamon and clove spice with orange and cranberry flavors. Every time you take a sip and smell this drink, you can actually feel the holidays. It warms your entire body immediately too. It’s a big mug of comfort all over.
This Sangria will be absolutely perfect for both, holiday parties or a quiet evening. It’s very conveniently made in a crock pot and you can easily keep it warm throughout the evening. I’m actually already planning on making it for our family Christmas dinner and our housewarming party.
Yeap, we get to have a housewarming party in just a couple of months! I may have mentioned earlier that we’ve been searching for a house and we found one we liked. Stars happened to line the right way for us so far. But until we have the keys in hand, I can’t quite relax. I’ve heard all the nightmare stories of things going wrong, so we are still holding our breath in hopes of a smooth road to closing. (Although, it hasn’t quite stopped me from decorating and planning in my head.)
No matter what kind of a party you are making this sangria for, your guests will be quite happy with it. This cocktail doesn’t have any added sugar, it’s sweetened with Sweet ‘N Low instead of sugar. Since Merlot, cranberries and orange are not sweet at all, this sangria needs a little touch of sweetness too it. Sweet ‘N Low is a zero calorie sweetener so it doesn’t add any calories but just the right amount of sweetness to a cocktail.
