Yobo Winter Sangria

Yobo Winter Sangria

This is a seasonal Sangria that is destined for get-togethers. Strongly spiced aromatics and fruity flavors fill the sangria itself. The finishing of a sparkling beverage helps bring every aroma to life. Served over ice, with fruit and spice, this truly is a winter-style refreshment.
