Yes, this has got to be the best festive fall adult drink around.  Sangria is a classic cocktail that will serve a crowd.  This version puts a spin on the original and gives you warm and fruity autumn flavors.   In fact, I served this at our Thanksgiving bash and it was such a hit that we made more the next day!  Even though it is close to Christmas I still wanted to share this with you because this would be a PERFECT holiday drink.  It's still apple season and why not take advantage of it.  I like to make use of all the specialty varieties before they are gone.  Go forth I say, drink and be merry!

The best part is this sangria is it's infused with a combination of in-season apples and ginger.  Fragrant, light, and refreshing, this drink will remind you of a fresh picked apple with a little zing to it!

I used an Italian Pinot Grigio (Ruffino) for the wine as a base.  Then I added apple vodka, (great for apple martinis...) apple cider, plenty of fresh cut apples, then topped it with some ginger ale for sparkle.  No extra added sugar here, this is sweet enough with the cider.  

The assembly is quick.  You only need a nice glass pitcher to show off the pretty colors and fruit.  Mix it up just before adding the ginger ale and place it in the refrigerator to meld together.  Then top it with ginger ale just before serving.

This truly is an amazing drink.  I hope that you will try this over the holiday season and come back and let me know what you think.

Enjoy!



Apple Cider Sangria





2 – 3 apples, diced ( I used 1 green - Golden Delicious and 2 red - Jazz)
1 bottle Pinot Grigio, (such as Ruffino)
1 cup Apple Cider
1/2 cup Apple Vodka (such as New Amsterdam)
1 can Diet Ginger Ale 

Dice the apples and add them to a large glass pitcher. Add in the wine, apple cider and vodka. Stir to combine.  Refrigerate at least 1-2 hours.

Add chilled ginger ale to the pitcher just before serving.  Stir to combine.  Add fruit to the glasses and fill with sangria.
