Cranberry Apple Sangria Recipe — A delicious cocktail that’s perfect for Thanksgiving. Tastes like Fall in a glass!
I’m currently downing green tea like they’re $1 well drinks on a Thursday night in college, and trying to kick this plague that has hit me for the SECOND time already this season. A bad track record for the girl who never gets sick. The perks of cooking with kids for a living.
…That is until 5PM hits, and I’ll switch my mug for a stemmed
pitcher glass…because everyone knows the saying…”starve a fever, feed a cold..wine until you pass out on the couch to an OxyClean infomercial.”
And I need to boost my immunity so I’ll be in the best shape possible to wrap my old lady hands on my first Thanksgiving turkey in almost 10 years. TA-EN YEARS. That calls for a festive cocktail!
I’m all for eating seasonally, and look at that, now I’m even drinking seasonally. I’m such a locavore hipster, I ate crab apple jelly before you even knew they were edible.
But no hard feelings. I want everyone to get boozy during the holidays equally as much. Nothing goes together quite like waking up from a turkey coma power nap with a sangria hangover. ‘Tis the season!
- 1 Apple, cored and chopped
- 1 cup fresh cranberries
- 1 bottle Pinot Grigio
- 1 bottle sparkling apple cider
- ½ cup white cranberry juice
- ice cubes
- Add chopped apples and cranberries to a large pitcher.
- Pour in wine and cranberry juice. Stir to combine.
- Store in fridge until ready to serve.
- Just before serving, add sparkling apple cider to pitcher.
- Top with ice if needed.
Hell, you could even add a splash of rum and really get the awkward family holiday juices flowing. Let me just say, I will never see the song “Hand Jive” and my Nana in the same light ever again.
Make it a great day!
