Celebrate National Wine Day with sangria

Sparkling sangria

Today is a national holiday in the US, but this year it also coincides with a "food holiday," National Wine Day (not to be confused with National Drink Wine Day).

Many people are attending parades and memorial services today to honor those who have fallen while serving in the military, and in addition are celebrating the long weekend by gathering with family and friends. What better way to do that than with a glass (or two) of wine?

Of course, you don't have to limit yourself to just pouring a glass of wine. The Splendid Table shows us another way to commemorate the day with two different sangria recipes. It's not too late to join the festivities in the US - just crack open a bottle, or try one of these sangria recipes from the EYB Library:
