This recipe is in collaboration with FitVine Wines, however, all opinions are my own.
APPLE CIDER SANGRIA RECIPE
When making this recipe, I start by chopping my apples into 1 inch chunks. I use Honey Crisp Apples for this recipe because they have a crisp taste but a sweet flavor as well. I love to add in about a tablespoon of pomegranate seeds. You can eat pomegranate seeds and they are good for you!
After adding the first two garnishes, I add a cup of FitVine Pinot Grigio and a cup of sparkling apple cider. I prefer FitVine Wines because it is lower in sugar, carbs, and sulfite. It’s also naturally grown, from grape to bottle, in California on a sustainable farm. They have many varieties that are very good, but I love a crisp, fruity Pinot Grigio for this Apple Cider Sangria.
After mixing the ingredients together, I add three cinnamon sticks to each glass and I like to let them marinate a little bit. This allows the cinnamon to mix nicely and you get a wonderful, fall flavor that is perfect for your fall entertaining! This is also a wonderful drink to make and enjoy on a quiet evening while curled up in front a cozy fire. Bring on all the fall things like fires, blankets, and yummy fall cocktails!
This festive Apple Cider Sangria Recipe is perfect for your fall or holiday entertainment. A crisp, apple cinnamon flavor, this cocktail is a crowd favorite.
