Ultimate Autumn Sangria

Matthew Kelly / Supercall

This seasonal Sangria is just what you need to ease you out of the hot days of summer and into cozy fall nights. Made with a base of sweet-tart Moscato, spicy applejack and an aromatic cocktail syrup infused with whole cloves, it harnesses a banquet of fresh autumn produce, adding fresh pears and apples into the mix. Tart and piquant, it’s the perfect pitcherful to whip up after a day of jumping in leaves—or even an impressive cocktail for a Thanksgiving feast.

  • 3 oz Applejack
  • 2 oz Clove Syrup
  • Apples and Pears
