I am such a fall lover. I am obsessed with scarves and snuggling and pumpkin everything. Another love of mine for sure is spiced apple cider. Instead of drinking it plain though, I much prefer something with a little kick that will give me that fresh appley taste - enter sangria recipe.This is so simple to make, it involves a little bit of chopping and a little bit of pouring, so nothing crazy. You could make this right before you leave to go to a party as long as you do give it an hour of so in the fridge to give the apples some time to soak everything up, though that's not a major step. And if you're anything like me, you'll probably have most of this stuff around the house so it doesn't involve too much shopping.// 4-6 apples (I used gala because they were on hand, but any type of red apple does the job)
// 1 cup club soda
// 3 cups fresh apple cider
// 1 bottle pinot grigio (or any white really)
// 1/2 cup cognac or brandy (for the kick)1// chop up the apples and fill the bottom third or so of your pitcher.
2// add all of the liquid ingredients in no particular order.
3// stir well and leave in the fridge for about an hour before serving to let the apples soak if you have the time.
Nothing like the fresh taste of apples to get fall feelings rolling. Yum.
