I love sangria and this one is especially unusual. Try different fruit combinations or mixing white wine with a sweeter white zinfandel. This is a definite make in advance recipe. You need time for the syrup to chill before blending with the wine. I make mins a day in advance and let the flavors marry.

Combine 1/2 cup water, 1 cup sugar and 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon or 1 cinnamon stick. Bring to simmer and cook 5 minutes. Slice fruit. Pour hot syrup over fruit and refrigerate.
