Fall Sangria

This sangria is the perfect fall sangria, the taste of apple cider, cinnamon sticks, oranges, pears, pomogranates, pinot Grigio, brandy, as you take your first sip you taste a hint of cinnamon, along with apple cider, then oranges, apples and pears. You will love it. It tastes so delicious you will just just keep wanting more. It does not have to be summer to enjoy a glass of sangria, this is great as a fall and winter drink, perfect for the holidays. I found it, tried this recipe on a few people and they could drink this all year round. Yet this drink is kinda healthy with the cinnamon and all the fresh fruit. It scream fall as your taking your first sip..


2 cinnamon sticks, plus more for serving
2 medium apples, honeycrisp, gala, thinly sliced
1 medium pear, thinly sliced
2 medium oranges, thinly sliced
1 cup pomegranate seeds, plus 2-3 Tablespoons of the pomogranate juice from the piece of fruit, if using the ones in a cup in the dairy isle they come in a little liquid, pour a little in along with the seeds, if desired( if not just seeds is fine)
1 bottle Pinot Grigio white wine (750 ml bottle)
2 1/2 cups apple cider
½ cup brandy
¼ cup orange juice
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
Club soda, for serving


1. Place the cinnamon sticks and fruit into a large pitcher. Add wine, apple cider, brandy, orange juice, and lemon juice. Allow to sit in the refrigerator for 3 hours. Around 6 hours is the best but can stay 24 hours.
2. Pour the sangria and fruit into mason jars or wine glasses top it with a splash of club soda then garnish with a cinnamon stick.
