Ingredients: 3 cinnamon sticks (plus more for garnish) 2 honeycrisp apples, chopped 1 orange, thinly sliced 1 (750 ml) bottle red wine (I suggest a light-bodied Spanish variety) 1 and 3/4 cups apple cider* 1/2 cup brandy 1/4 cup orange juice (or juice from 2 medium oranges) juice from 1 lemon club soda, to taste Directions: Place the cinnamon sticks, apples, and orange slices in a large pitcher. Add wine, apple cider, brandy, orange juice, and lemon juice. Allow to sit in the refrigerator for 6 - 24 hours. Taste; if you'd like it to be sweeter, add 1-2 Tablespoons granulated sugar, honey, or agave. If you'd like a cinnamon-sugar rim (highly recommended), simply moisten the rim of your glasses with water, turn the glass upside down and dip it into a mix of cinnamon and sugar. Pour in the sangria with fruit* and add a splash of club soda (this unsweetened fizz is wonderful with the sangria!). Garnish with a cinnamon stick, if desired. Cheers!
Sounds like my Thanksgiving dinner just got a lot more fun!
Whaaat. I love sangria. And I love the little autumnal twist this one has.
