How am I getting my drink on in the New Year?  Winter Sangria!

How is Winter Sangria different than Summer Sangria?  The fruit you put in it, basically.  Summer’s all about Mangos, Pineapples, Crushed Pom Seeds, and… whoo boy, I kind of want Summer Sangria now.  But we’ve got a long ways to go before Winter’s over.  Bugh.  January.

January is shit.  January is as if we’re all going to jail for a month, and it’s all about doing everything we can to not go crazy in jail.  January is “take down those decorations!  Change that music!  Stop that singing!  Get away from your family!  Get back to work!  Get that tree the HELLLL outta here!”  Hey January, can you take the cold with you too?  “NO.  THAT STAYS.”

Anyway, Winter Sangria fruit is apples, pears, and tangerines. Throw them into a jug of sangria, and you’re good to go!

But get Carol Rossi sangria, and you can even drink it straight.
