Fall Sangria Recipe Sure to Delight
This autumn enliven your parties (or tailgating events) with Sangria. Your guests will love this recipe and you will look like a cocktail hero. Not a bad tradeoff don't you think?
Sangria is excellent to serve at events because it is truly hassle free. You can put out the pitchers and let people help themselves. I used to be one of the ones who would think "I can't make a sangria." Yet this is simply not true. These cocktails take about 15 minutes to prep before chilling the entire mixture.
This particular Sangria recipe can be served chilled after 24-48 hours as you would with a "standard" sangria or immediately while it is still warm for more of a "Vin Chaud" cocktail. For those of you who don't know, Vin Chaud is a mulled wine with spices popular around the holidays. This winter we'll be rolling out specific Vin Chaud recipes so stay tuned.
This recipe uses: Cinnamon Harvest Cocktail Sugar
Fall Sangria Cocktail Recipe(Serves many):
- 1 bottle Merlot (inexpensive is better --> We used 2 buck Chuck
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 3 Apples
- 4 Cinnamon Sticks
- Cinnamon Harvest Cocktail Sugar
- Chop Apples. You may want to soak the apples in Brandy. This will saturate the apples with alcohol and prevent the alcohol from the wine from entering the apples
- Add wine, cinnamon sticks, sugar, and apples to a large pot and heat. Do not boil the mixture (or your apples will become soggy). You want to heat and stir so that the ingredients blend.
- Remove from heat and place in a pitcher (that can withstand hot liquids). Cover the Sangria and let the mixture cool.
- Place in the refrigerator for 24-48 hours.
- When you are ready to serve, wet the rim of a wine glass with a fresh apple slice.
- Apply Cinnamon Harvest Cocktail Sugar with your Barmaid Drink Rimmer.
