Apple Cider Sangria

It’s sweet, it’s spiced, and it’s fruity, but it still packs a punch. This sangria a great drink to start out with at a fall dinner party, and being that Thanksgiving is the Super Bowl of fall dinner parties, we think this is the perfect way to kick off the festivities on Thursday. And for those of you who aren’t cooking this holiday, why not show your family how thankful you are for them by arriving at your aunt’s or brother’s or son’s or mother’s house with a batch of apple cider sangria, rather than just a plain old bottle of wine? This recipe takes no more than 10 minutes to whip up, so in very little time and with very little effort, you could be the star of Thanksgiving by not even turning on your oven. We do suggest that you plan a little in advance though with this recipe. It benefits from an overnight stay in the fridge.
