What would Fall in Michigan be without a trip to an apple orchard?
And while others find delicious things to bake with their Fall apple and pear haul, I like my fruit with a little bit of warmth and kick to it! 🙂
Sangria is delicious all year round but there is something special about Sangria in the Fall (you can find my favorite summer sangria recipe here).
It makes the perfect cocktail for a group because you can make it ahead of time.
Bourbon adds warmth to this sangria and makes it the perfect cocktail for bonfire weather here in the midwest.
A bonus, Northern Michigan is known for its apple and pear orchards so I usually have lots of fruit on hand this time of year.
2 medium pears
2 Honey Crisp Apples
2/3 cup orange juice
1/2 freshly squeezed lemon juice
4 cups of fresh apple cider
1 cup of bourbon
1 bottle dry red wine
So I promised this was an easy Fall sangria.
Here we go.
Garnish with fresh Cinnamon sticks and enjoy!
Makes 4 servings
I said it was easy!
I personally think it’s the bourbon/cinnamon addition that makes this sangria so warm and cozy.
I get questions on the source of these placemats ofter so I have put them below. They are affiliate links.
Until next time,
