Crazy Good Sangria Recipe for Fall

Crazy Good Sangria Recipe for Fall

I am sooooo excited!  It’s that time of year again…

I am talking about cool, crisp air and evenings sitting outside by the fire sipping one of my all time favorite sangria treats!!!  I made this for the first time last year for a family gathering and it was a HUGE hit!!!

Crazy Good Honeycrisp Apple Sangria:

2 Honeycrisp apples
One 750-milliliter bottle
unoaked Chardonnay
1/3 C. peach Schnapps
1/4 C. pisco (I could not find this so
I used a bit more peach schnapps)
1/4 C. honey (Orange Blossom Honey
worked beautifully)
2 oranges- 1 quartered
1 lemon – quartered
1 lime – quartered
2 cinnamon sticks
2 quarter-size slices of fresh ginger
3 whole cloves
2 T. sugar
1/2 t. ground cinnamon
Ice
Club soda (used ginger ale)
Mint sprigs – for garnish

Peel, core and chop one of the apples. In a bowl, combine the Chardonnay, Schnapps, pisco (if you can’t find just add in more Schnapps) and honey. Add the quartered orange, the lemon, lime, cinnamon sticks, the chopped apple, ginger and cloves and refrigerate at least 4 hours. (I let mine sit overnight.)

Strain the sangria into a pitcher. Peel, core and finely chop the remaining apple. Peel, section and chop the remaining orange. Mix the apple and orange in a bowl.

On a small plate, blend the sugar and cinnamon. Moisten the rims of wine glasses with an orange slice and dip in the cinnamon sugar to coat. Fill the glasses with ice. Pour in the sangria until three-quarters full. Top with a splash of club soda (ginger ale). Garnish with a spoonful of the chopped apple and orange and a mint sprig.
