Apple Cider Sangria


041Where has the time gone? I cant believe that this year is almost over. Why is it the next couple of weeks for me are the most hectic for the year? No matter how hard I try I take on to much and spend way to much.

This drink came out of necessity. With Christmas around the corner I thought I would need to get creative. In my pantry I had a bottle of Riesling, some leftover apple cider and some apple schnapps in the liquor cabinet. I also had some apples and pears in a big bowl on my table ready to be eaten.

So when we had relatives come into town I improvised and made this. It stretched that wine and sure tasted good. The relatives raved about it.


Apple Cider Sangria


1 bottle white wine (Riesling Pinot Grigio)

2 1/2 cups apple cider

1 cup ginger ale

2 apples chopped

2 pears chopped

1/2 cup apple schnapps


Combine wine, cider, ginger ale and schnapps. Stir to combine. Add apples or other fruit you may like. Refrigerate for an hour or more before serving.

Peace be with you,
