Easy Cranberry Sangria

Add a little holiday spirit to a classic sangria recipe. This drink is delicious served warm or chilled.

Sangria is good just about anytime. To give it some holiday flair you might need a little something extra. Cranberries are just the thing. The tartness of the cranberries works perfectly with the sweetness of the drink and the fragrant citrus. Cinnamon adds a little spice and sets the stage for a chilly-weather party.
