It's the easiest sangria you'll ever make.

I used to not like wine. Maybe it was because I was raised on "church wine" that all other wine lost it's appeal. But then when I turned 28, something happened. I started straight up craving wine.

And since then, I've been on a vino-journey to find any kind of wine I will actually enjoy while I drink it. Lately, I've been on a sangria kick - but not just any sangria; a 'sangria by the glass' style of drinking. Sure I can make an entire bottle of sangria, but I've been LOVING these solo sangria glasses which make it so that I can enjoy a glass or two without getting completely sloshed. Plus, using frozen fruit helps chill down freshly purchased room temperature wine - so extra bonus points for that!

Of course, you can make this recipe with any of your favorite wines or make it in a big batch. I find most wine bottles will have about 5-8 glasses of wine, so whichever kind you choose, you can duplicate the amount of ingredients to suit your personal tastes.
