Who says Sangria is just for warm weather??? Not me! I love a festive Sangria all year round.
Here is a really fun twist on a festive sangria that will have you refilling your glass! The twist….well, the twist is the cinnamon stick! It adds a delicious flavor punch that is unexpected and wonderful! You will love serving this at Thanksgiving and during the holidays.
This Sangria is so, so good! You must make it and let me know what you think!
1 Bottle Sauvignon Blanc wine
1/2 cup Cointreau
2 Tbsp bottle key lime juice
1/4 cup simple syrup (homemade recipe below)
1 red d’anjou pear, cored and chopped
1 orange, sliced and then quartered
1 gala apple, cored and chopped
2 cinnamon sticks
Simple Syrup: Take 1/4 cup of organic cane sugar and mix with 1/4 cup of water. Microwave until sugar is melted (about 1-1.5 minutes). Stir and chill. This will make more than you need for the Sangria Recipe.
