Santa’s Sangria

Every year Mike and I throw a big Christmas party for our friends.  This year’s is tomorrow night, so I am running around baking and cooking…AND mixing up a BIG bowl of Red Sangria (which I rename Santa’s Sangria for the night).  I got this recipe from my sister-in-law Diana.  It’s best if you make it the day before you are serving it, so the fruit can soak up all the merriness.
