Ahhmazing Autumn Sangria Recipe

Perfect for fall.  Tasty for your October gatherings.  Nice beverage for your adult Halloween party.  This Autumn Sangria recipe is the perfect combo of not-too-sweet with a little spice.  a-san-drinkI recently served this to my gal pals and they asked for seconds…and thirds.  Everyone commented how unique, refreshing and tasty this particular sangria tasted.  One chef friend of mine exclaimed, “It tastes just like Fall”….true!  If you love Sangria, you will love this.  If you are not a Sangria fan, you may be surprised that you like this one because it is not near as sweet as traditional Sangria. Give it a try.   I am pretty sure it will be a big hit at your autumn gathering!  It was at mine!  Here is the easy recipe that marinates overnight, too.  I think another reason this is so delish is the pumpkin pie spice that is also included in the recipe.  A big thank you to Hob Nob wine for sharing this recipe with me! Hob Nob has their wicked wines available at Total Wine & More now and the Halloween labeling is so cool.  Plus the price is right at only $9.99 a yummy bottle.  Thanks Hob Nob!  mail-wine
