Snuggle up next a warm fire with this apple cider sangria, the perfect drink for Autumn.
I don’t know about you, but I love Autumn! It is my absolute favorite season. As the temperatures cool down, there’s a crisp in the air, the trees turn beautiful shades of yellow, red, and orange, and there’s nothing better than sitting next to a fire with a seasonal sangria in hand. This apple cider sangria is the perfect Autumn sangria!
Of course, I could drink sangria year round, but this apple cider sangria was created specifically for Autumn and has just a handful of ingredients. You’ll need a bottle of Pinot Grigio or any other semi-sweet white wine, apple cider, fresh apples and pears, a dash of club soda or sparkling water and a few cinnamon sticks. Combine all of the ingredients and then let it sit for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors meld together before serving.
September is apple season here in the US, which is the perfect time for fresh apples and fresh apple cider. Here in the Midwest, there seems to be an apple festival in every town throughout September. Do you have apple festivals near you? There’s some nostalgia with the changing of the seasons, especially moving into Autumn. So many memories of seasonal festivals, apple orchards, pumpkin patches, it’s just my favorite time of year! What’s your favorite season?
