One of the many things I love about fall is the seasonal produce it offers. My love for creating cocktails had me contemplating how I could incorporate seasonal fall fruits and spices into a delicious sangria and I think I’ve found the answer. What screams fall more than a spiced cranberry apple sangria?
Taking minimal time to prepare, this sangria is perfect for your next fall get together or celebration. The combination of cranberries, apples, and spices blend perfectly with a crisp pinot grigio that is not overly sweet.
This sangria also budget-friendly. The fresh fruit and artomatic spices transform ordinary wine into something spectacular. Some might disagree, but I don’t think that you need a fine wine to make a good sangria. I’ve made sangrias using expensive wine and the difference in taste isn’t worth the difference in price to me.
Who doesn’t love a good sangria? If you’re craving a taste of autumn, you must give this sangria a try, you won’t be disappointed!
- 1 (1 1/2 liter) bottle pinot grigio
- 2 1/2 cups cran-apple juice
