I am not a huge fan of a classic Sangria as it's often just too sweet, this is a great winter alternative. Served ice cold, but warm with spice, lightly fruity with a good hint of citrus and not too sweet. Its makes a great change to mulled wine for when you have friends over during the holidays, as you can mix up a few jugs in the morning and your good to go when they arrive. Be warned it's very Moorish!
1 bottle of red wine (vegan)
2 cinnamon sticks

¼ cup Pimms winter or maple syrup/agave nectar/date syrup/caster sugar.
2 330ml tins of ginger beer or lemonade/Fanta but I like the ginger hit
