Delicious “Sparkling and Spiced Citrus Sangria”

Here’s the link from Yummly.  I started making a batch yesterday, but I was missing a few things so I tweaked it a bit.  First, I had no ginger shrub so I used some extra cranberry peppercorn syrup (the recipe is in the link) and sprinkled in some powdered ginger.  Also, I couldn’t find any…
