Soon we will be entering a new season, and I bet you're looking for a crowd pleasing beverage that incorporates all the hints of Autumn. Crisp apples, tangy oranges, sweet berries and a pinch of cinnamon spice, this Fall Harvest Sangria recipe is made to delight your taste buds while enjoying with a bit of Brunch-Fare.
Sangria is one of my all-time favorite adult beverages to enjoy! Perfectly festive, the Fall Harvest Sangria is THE DRINK to consume while welcoming Autumn. I recommend sipping a glass while decorating for Fall, going out in your backyard and raising a glass to the changing leaves, and cozying up in a blanket while reading a fine Fall novel.
With layers of sweet and tangy flavors, the Fall Harvest Sangria can be enjoyed throughout the day, as it pairs wonderfully with so many meals. Basically, it's wine taken to the next level in my opinion. And it's even something your non-loving wine friends will enjoy, since Sangria tends to take on a taste of its own.
How to make a pitcher of Fall Harvest Sangria
Most Sangria recipes can be prepared the day before or day of when needed for serving. Making it a great adult beverage of choice to be able to prep ahead of time. Several pitchers of Sangria can be made up and stored in the refrigerator, allowing you to easily replace empty pitchers with filled ones as needed to keep the fun and Sangria flowing!
- Frozen Berries: Find a variety of frozen berries in the frozen isle of your grocery store. Choose a combination to your liking, from blueberries and strawberries to more complex blends that include cherries and pomegranate.
- Apples: A couple of crisp apples of your choosing will do. The apples will be thinly sliced and placed into the picture.
- Orange: A fresh orange is best to ensure enough juices are released to infuse and meld with the other ingredients.
- Ground Cinnamon
- Red Wine: Use a dry wine to make a more traditional Spanish style Sangria. Since the wine will be mixed with sweet fruits and apple juice, you will want to prevent the Sangria from becoming overly sweet.
- Apple Juice
- Club Soda
How to Serve Sangria
- Pour and Serve: If you are a hostess that enjoys making up drinks, place ice in wine glasses or Old Fashion glasses. Pour Sangria over the ice and garnish the drink with a few apple slices, an orange slice and berries.
- Sangria Station: For a self-serving Sangria station, set out a full pitcher or beverage dispenser, an ice bucket and drinkware for guests to easily access. A separate bowl of sliced oranges, fresh berries and cinnamon sticks can be added to the station for guests to add garnishes if they wish. Keep an eye on the station to ensure the station is well stocked and tidy.
