Apple Cider Sangria

You know I love sangria right?  I mean who doesn’t?  Fruit, wine, extra booze, a little bit of sparkling something – it’s heaven in a glass!  I’ve always considered white sangria a marvelous drink for summer get-togethers and red sangria fantastic for winter parties.  Now I have something fabulous for fall festivities – apple cider sangria!

It’s the weekend!  Grab your favorite pitcher, put on a cozy sweatshirt, and make yourself some apple cider sangria, you’ll be happy you did!  Apparently Hurricane Sandy is coming to New York.  I should go stock up on the wine now,  there would be nothing worse than being trapped in the house during a hurricane without any wine!!!

This is goooooood sangria.  Sweet from the apple cider, crisp from the Pinot Grigio, and spiced from the cinnamon and ginger.  The sangria is easy to make and delightful to drink!

Apple Cider Sangria
Adapted from How Sweet it is
Yield 4-6 (12-16 servings)
Note – I made 3 pitchers, so the amounts in parentheses are totals to make 3 pitchers worth

1 (3) bottles pinot grigio
1 1/2 (4 ½) cups apple cider
1/2 (1 1/2) cups brandy
1 (3) pears, cored and cut into slices
2 (6) apples, cored and cut into slices
3 (9) inches ginger, peeled and chopped into 1/2 inch slices
3 (9) cinnamon sticks
1 (3) cups seltzer
apple slices and cinnamon sticks

  1. The night before or early in the day combine the first seven ingredients into your pitcher.  If you have small pitchers like me, make a larger batch but divide among several pitchers.
  2. Stir gently to combine and place in the fridge.
  3. Before serving add the seltzer.
  4. Serve over ice with apple slices and cinnamon sticks as garnish.
