Apple Cider Sangria

This recipe was shared by a friend, who shared the link for it.  I’ve had several requests for the recipe and now I’m sharing it, with of course, a bit of tweaking on my end, lol! CHEERS! 😉

 

fall sangria

1 regular sized bottle Pinot Grigio (I used Barefoot brand)
2 1/2 cups fresh Apple Cider
1/2 cup Ginger Brandy (I only found Ginger “flavored” brandy)
1/2 cup Sugar, to taste
1 cup Club soda
3 Honeycrisp apples
3 Pears
Ground Cinnamon, for garnish
Cinnamon sticks, for garnish
Turbinado sugar, for rimming glasses
Ice

This is such an easy recipe! Combine everything into a large pitcher or container, except for the club soda, ice, and garnishments. Stir well and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight!

When ready to serve: Rim the glasses with the turbinado sugar, by wetting the rim first. I used a wedge of lemon to moisten; dip into the turbinado sugar, then add the ice. Add the club soda to the pitcher of Sangria, stir well. Pour Sangria into each glass along with some of the fruit. Sprinkle some ground cinnamon (optional) and garnish with a cinnamon stick. SERVE immediately!
