Photo Friday: Cinnamon Sangria

I'm kind of a sucker for Sangria on a menu. Perhaps it brings back memories of our trip to Spain with the Kids a few years ago, or maybe it's just because it's so delicious on a warm day. It feels like I've ordered Sangria in restaurants around the world, and I've seen lots and lots of creative variations. Still, I was surprised to see this glass show up sprinkled with Cinnamon (it was delicious). I'm wondering whether this is a regional idea in Florida? Or just something cooked up by the chefs at Frency's Beach Cafe? Has anyone else ever had Sangria with Cinnamon on top?

        I love sangria! I order it whenever I see it. We also make it often. Whenever we open a bottle of wine that's not quite right, we save it for making sangria.

        No, I've never seen it served like that but I love cinnamon so I certainly wouldn't object!

        Spain? Sangria?! Yes, please! Never had cinnamon on Sangria, then again, I only get to have white wine sangria cause the red triggers migraines. Took many years to learn my lesson on that one. Instead I will just sit back and sniff everyone else's glass :-)

        great the way the tones in the sangria echo the colors in the background -- lovely shot, thanks.

        I would never think to sprinkle cinnamon on sangria. The most original and delicious drink I had recently had rose water liqueur and rose petals mixed with champagne. Super yum!

        If my daughter were drinking age, that'd be the drink for her - she's a cinnamon freak and puts it on everything!
