happy hour: fall sangria

i saw this recipe the other day and have been dying to try it.  in the fall, i always (want to) like mulled wine, but sometimes hot, spicey wine just doesn't cut it.  i think is autumnal take on a classic sangria might just do the trick!

fall sangria

3 apples
3 pears
3 clementines
2-3 cinnamon sticks
2 tbsp honey or agave syrup
6 oz triple sec or cointreau
2 bottles of red wine (something fruity works best)
optional: fresh cherries

1. core and cube all fruit and put into a pitcher or carafe
2. add 2-3 cinnamon sticks & 2 honey, stir
3. add liquor and wine, stir and let sit.

it's best if you make this drink a few hours or even a day in advnace and let the flavors mariante in the fridge.  garish with fresh, ripe cherries : )

cheers & happy weekend!

  4. Loveee the idea of a fall sangria! I am always looking for good fall cocktails because I'm always disappointed when the season of fresh berries, read perfect cocktail ingredients, ends. Happy weekend! xo

  12. This sounds so yummy. Since you said fruity wine, I think a scuppernong wine would be perfect...especially since I've been craving it this week anyway :) Will have to make this soon!

  17. looks yummy. This is the only sangria recipe I have seen that doesn't call for ginger ale or lemon/lime soda at the end. Is this right or am I missing something?

  21. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of
    plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a
    lot of completely unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help reduce content from being stolen? I'd really appreciate it.
