Apple Sangria

I like them apples!

I like them apples!

This drink is perfect for a crowd, but also light enough that if you just happen to finish the whole pitcher with the help of your lovely spouse you won’t be hurting the next day. You can make it the night before or just a few hours before. We know fridge space is valuable on holidays.

Apple Sangria

  • 2 cups thinly sliced apples
  • 1 cup Lillet Blanc
  • 2 cups apple cider
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • cinnamon stick
  • half lemon
  • 1 750-ml bottle of light white wine or sparkling wine

Mix apples with lemon juice and honey in a two- to three-liter pitcher. Throw in cinnamon stick, cider and Lillet Blanc. Refrigerate four hours and up to overnight. When ready to serve pour in wine. Put a few apples in the bottom of each glass before serving.
