Apple Cider Sangria

Who says sangria is just for the summer months???

Try this delicious Apple Cider Sangria with the warm flavors of Autumn and you’ll be hooked

You’ll need an orange and lemon for the citrus flavors and a mix of apples.  I’m using a Granny Smith for the tartness, a Gala for sweetess and a Golden Delicious for it’s buttery taste

Thinly slice and add to a pitcher

The bottle of white wine you choose will determine the overall sweetness of the sangria

 We prefer our sangria to be a little less sweet, so I chose a dry Chardonnay.  If you like life on the sweeter side, pick something like a Moscato

Either way, the warm flavors will shine through

Pour a 750ml bottle of white wine and 2 cups of apple cider over the fruit in the pitcher

Chill for at least an hour to allow the flavors to meld

Stir and pour over ice in a tall glass and garnish with an apple wedge

  For an extra kick, we like to add in a shot of ginger beer.  There’s no alcohol in ginger beer, but it has a wonderful ginger flavor

You can also use regular ginger ale, but keep in mind, it’s sweeter than ginger beer
