Wine and Dine

First I drink the wine, then I do the things

With the holiday season quickly approaching I wanted to share two of my favorite fall sangria recipes! My husband and I host an annual Friendsgiving dinner at our house and these sangrias are staples in our menu (along with my famous turkey chili which can be found here). 

APPLE CINNAMON SANGRIA


Here’s what you’ll need: 

  • 6 Gala Apples
  • 3 Red Pears
  • 1 bottle (750mL) cinnamon whiskey 
  • 1 bottle Pinot Grigio
  • 64 oz bottled apple cider 
  • 1 liter club soda

Here’s how you make it:

  • Dice apples and pears into cubes and place in a large bowl/jar/drink dispenser and pour in the bottle of cinnamon whiskey. Cover and soak for minimum 2 hours (the longer the better!) 
  • Pour in apple cider, club soda, and Pinot Grigio
  • Serve over ice
  • Cheers!

CARAMEL APPLE SANGRIA 

Here’s what you’ll need: 

  • 2 Medium Apples
  • 1 cup Caramel flavored vodka
  • 6 cups Apple Cider
  • 1 bottle (750mL) Pinot Grigio 

Here’s how to make it:

  • Mix apple cider, vodka, and wine in a larger pitcher/drink dispenser
  • Chop apples and add to mix and allow to soak for at least 30 minutes prior to serving
  • Serve over ice
  • Cheers!
