Autumn Sangria

Introducing the party punch of Spain, Portugal, Mexico and Argentina.

Serve up a homemade sangria that reflects the autumn season with pears, apples, oranges and a hint cinnamon.  Be generous with the fruit it makes a difference.  With that said, be generous with the Cointreau, or triple sec it makes a difference too.

A definite crowd pleaser!


Autumn Sangria
Serves 6-8

Ingredients:
3 apples
3 pears
3 clementines or other orange slices
2-3 cinnamon sticks
2 tablespoons honey or agave syrup

Fresh cherries

Directions:
1.  Core and cube all fruit and put into a pitcher or carafe
2.  Add 2-3 cinnamon sticks and honey
3.  Add cherries
4. Add liquor and wine, stir and let sit to allow the flavors to come together.

Enjoy!

Love your sangria. Reminds me of a friend who always served sangria for his guests as a first cocktail to his Thanksgiving and Christmas parties.

That looks like a pitcher full of fun! I can do a lot of damage to some sangria:)

Love how the fruit has soaked up all the red wine.
