Ultimate Autumn Sangria
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.
- 1 750-ml Moscato
- 3 oz Applejack
- 2 oz Clove Syrup

In a pitcher, combine the wine, apple brandy and clove syrup. Stir to mix.
