Autumn Sangria

November 23, 2017

 

Every year For Thanksgiving, near or far, my wife and I concoct a delicious Autumn Sangria. We take the delicious spiced apple cider from Trader Joe’s that has absolutely no added sugar and spike it with white wine.

 

There’s truly nothing like spiced apple cider and a really good Riesling—ultimately, my preferred white wine. This is the heart of our family Autumn Sangria.

 

 

For the perfect Autumn Sangria right at home, you can play around with the added fruits and spices to your liking. My favorite part about making sangria for a holiday gathering or get together is infusing different fruits with herbs or spices that pair well with the variety of wines my wife and I like.

 

 

From pomegranate arils and cinnamon sticks to pear wedges and apple slices, your Autumn Sangria is just that: YOURS to play with and have fun. Sometimes I add in orange segments or maybe a branch of bay leaves for looks. Whatever you or your guests like [or even whatever colors match your holiday theme] it's whatever goes!

 

Happy Holidays, lovely people!
