Apple Cider Sangria


In case you missed it yesterday, Maggie and I talked all about our housewarming party that we threw for our new apartment on the blog yesterday.  One of the aspects of the party that we highlighted was the signature cocktail that I made to serve to our guests, Apple Cider Sangria.


I chose this cocktail because not only is sangria super easy to make and serve, but it uses seasonally appropriate ingredients as well!


Here's what you need: -fresh apple cider -white wine (we used Pinot Grigio) -ginger ale -fresh apples -fresh oranges -cinnamon sticks

Here's what to do: 1) Chop up the fresh oranges and apples and put into a pitcher. Add a few cinnamon sticks.


2) On top of fruit and cinnamon sticks, add a full bottle of white wine.


3) Top with apple cider, filling your pitcher a little more than 3/4 of the way. 4) Use a stirrer to combine the ingredients.  Top pitcher with ginger ale.


5) Cover your pitcher with plastic wrap and leave in fridge for at least an hour. 6) After letting sit, uncover and serve! Garnish each glass with a few slices of apples and a cinnamon stick.


This sangria was a huge hit amongst our guests.  There are not many people who don't enjoy apple cider in the Fall!


Until next week... Cheers!
