This Cranberry Apple Sangria recipe is a delicious cocktail made with white wine, fresh fruit, and apple cider. Perfect for Thanksgiving or any fall celebration!
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 strongly believe there is a sangria for every season (especially summer). Or at least that's what I use as an excuse to make one for every occasion.
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 cranberry apple sangria hangover. 'Tis the season!
Money saving tips for this Cranberry Apple Sangria Recipe:
- Buy inexpensive wine: No top shelf wines need apply here. Since this is mixed, buying a more affordable bottle of pinot is fine.
- Shop the sales: Any apple will work for this recipe. Use whichever apple is on sale that week.

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.
