Holiday Cocktail Recipe Series: Day 7 of 12 – Holiday Jamgria

Holiday season or not, few things shout “Celebration!” louder than a pitcher of sangria being passed around among friends and family. This seasonal punch-up of traditional sangria brings together the flavors of apple cider, ginger beer, cinnamon and more to complement sweet white wine.
