Winter Spiced Sangria
Depending on whether your apartment is hot or cold in the winter, you will want to make this recipe as sangria or mulled wine.
I recently heard somewhere that old buildings in New York tended to be overheated because it was assumed that you needed fresh air, and would therefore keep your windows open all winter. It’s certainly the best explanation we’ve heard about why our apartment (built in 1927) is so hot, even though we’ve turned the radiators all the way down. And we do keep the windows wide open. Lots of fresh air and quite a waste of energy!
So when we had a party this weekend, 15 people in the already hot room, we opted for the chilled sangria. It was delicious. Not too sweet with plenty of holiday flavor!
