Happy Holidays everyone! The food is cooking, the candles are burning, the holiday music is on and everyone needs a great drink! When I plan my menu for the holidays, I always like to have a “signature” drink as well. It’s an easy way to have a drink pre-made that your friends and family can enjoy while you are slaving away in the kitchen!
This year, I decided to make an apple cider sangria. We received this beverage dispenser as a wedding gift and I knew it would be perfect for the sangria! We made this for Thanksgiving, but it is also perfect for Christmas and New Years! You will need the following to make this drink:
1 Bottle of Pinot Grigio
2 1/2 Cups of Apple Cider
1 Cup of Club Soda
1/2 Cup of Ginger Brandy
(or 1/2 Cup of Regular Brandy & Ginger Powder to taste)
3 Honey Crisp Apple (chopped)
3 Pears (chopped)
Note: I doubled the above recipe based on the amount of people I had over (and the large beverage dispenser)!
This was a delicious recipe and everyone loved it! I hope you enjoyed this post! Happy Holidays everyone!
