Mulled White Wine Sangria Recipe

Mulled wine, with it’s aromatic spices filling the air, makes for a great holiday elixir. I have been wanting to make a mulled wine for a long time, but never came around to actually making it. Seeing a similar concoction in one of my favorite magazines, Martha Stewart Living, gave me the jumpstart I needed. I love making sangria and the thought of incorporating spices to give it a holiday feel excited me! I didn’t follow the recipe exactly, but I did take the best parts, and added a bit of my own. I made this for Thanksgiving and everybody raved about it. Mulled white wine sangria is perfect for a get-together with friends or family.
