Mixed in the lab:

Similar to the taste of a Moscow Mule. This wonderfully warm and seasonal sangria delights the palate and can be served over ice or as a granita. The soothing smell of apple seduces the olfactory senses while the sensations of cinnamon and ginger is likened to having your taste buds dancing in your mouth.
