Among all the hustle and bustle of December we have to take a moment and celebrate National Sangria Day.  Sangria is a fun and festive beverage that began in Spain.  During the 1964 Worlds Fair in New York, Spain introduced Sangria to the visitors and everyone loved it! So began the Sangria craze. Today we celebrate the wonderful beverage.

My girlfriend Teri makes a killer Sangria. We had it a few Christmas Eve’s ago, but she wouldn’t share her recipe with me for today.  I created my own recipe for White Sangria. The only thing I would change, well two things. First I would only add 1/2  the bottle of hard cider and second I would cut up the cranberries in half. The tart cranberries with the sweetness of the Sangria made the cranberries edible.

What you will need is a nice pitcher, something I didn’t have.  Ingredients is listed in order.
