Fall Sangria has everything you love about sweet, fruity sangia, but with notes of apple, cinnamon, and clove for fall.
It’s the fall equinox. Sounds like reason to have a drink to me! Mix up a pitcher and hand of the glasses for a sweet and fruity drinkity drink for the season where we want all things cozy. Even better if you serve with some Pumpkin Banana Spice Bread.
- 1 bottle cabernet savignon
- 1 c apple juice
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 2 pinches ground cloves
- 4 oz brandy
- 1 apple, cored and diced
- 1 pear, cored and diced
- ginger ale, chilled
Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher except the ginger ale. Chill an hour or two to combine flavors. To serve, pour 4 ounces of the wine mixture in a glass. Add some of the fruit and 2 ounces ginger ale (I like it freshly fizzy).
In the photo above, you may spot the whole cloves. I didn’t use those – changed my mind and used ground cloves when I was making this as listed in the ingredients.
