Holiday Spiced Wine

With only 2 days until Christmas, it’s time to break out the booze! Spiced Wine here we come!

It’s not really Christmas until someone breaks out the spiced wine and someone drinks a few too many glasses and wakes up with a major hangover. That’s what Christmas is all about right? I’m kidding. Really, no one likes a hangover. But I can guarantee you that people are going to like this spiced wine.

It’s like sangria, but for winter. And I’m on board. 100%

Plus it doubles as a way to get warm – and for anyone that lives anywhere (except Southern California and Florida) that is a necessity.

Holiday Spiced Wine

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday!! Merry Merry :)
