For Halloween, I’m going to make the Vegan Candy Corn recipe that was on the FP Blog earlier and this drink, and snuggling up with my kitty to watch non-scary movies!

I love indulging in Sangria from time to time but never even thought of this combination – Can’t wait to try it
This sounds delicious! I plan to use it for thanksgiving too!!
How big is a serving? Should i double or even triple the ingredients for a party of 12-18 adults?
This was amazing. We served 8 adults with very differing taste preferences and everyone loved it. I hollowed out a large white pumpkin to use as a serving bowl, and rimmed the glasses with sugared pumpkin spice beforehand. Everyone was feeling super cozy!
why isn’t the Moonshine mentioned in the recipe but shown in the photo? Sangria with moonshine?
