Sparkling Apple Cider Sangria

Matthew Kelly/Supercall

Sangria isn’t just for enjoying on the patio with a plate of tapas during the summer—it’s an extremely versatile cocktail that can and should be sipped year round, especially during the fall. This autumnal twist on white wine Sangria mixes the vino with sparkling apple cider, potent applejack, fresh lemon juice and cinnamon syrup. Red apples, oranges, pomegranate seeds and cinnamon sticks infuse even more seasonal flavor into the beverage to create a crisp and cozy cocktail that’s perfect for serving with Thanksgiving dinner or during any fall celebration.
