Most people think of Sangria as a light, fruity, white drink. Although all of those things are good, swap the white for red wine and now you’re speaking my language. Add in an unexpected flavor, and you’ve got me hooked. This red sangria is different because notes of cinnamon and brown sugar warm up your taste buds with a smooth, fruity finish. Delicious!

Have you ever gone out to a favorite bar or restaurant and then gone home to try to make something they had on their menu? One of our favorite lunch spots here in Ocean City serves the most delicious Sangria that I think I’ve ever had. I’ve tried a lot of red sangria’s and found that they all included some type of Brandy (including this local restaurant). The secret ingredient to our version is definitely the Fireball. It warms up the flavors and leaves you wondering what the heck is in the drink. (In a good way.) Sometimes people scoff at Fireball but clearly, I’m a big fan of it. Don’t you remember when we shared this Fireball Apple Cider Slushy? That was a huge hit on the blog!
