Make This Apple Cider Sangria For Your Next Party

Once you’ve had a sip of freshly pressed, unfiltered, unsweetened apple cider, the “apple juice” sold in stores just cannot compare.

And luckily for those who’ve never tried it, fresh apple cider abounds this time of year.

For the first week, it’s like drinking fresh, ripe apples — lightly fizzy and naturally sweet with a rich body that can only come from pressed fruit (and not a diluted juice concentrate).


– 1 (750 ml) bottle dry white wine – 2 cups apple cider – 1/2 cup brandy – 2 medium apples, cored and cut into      matchsticks – 1/2 cup fresh cranberries, sliced,     plus more for garnishing – 1 tablespoon grated ginger – 2 cups club soda


In a large pitcher, combine the wine, cider, brandy, apples, cranberries, and ginger.


Chill the sangria while the fruits infuse, at least 30 minutes.


Stir in the club soda before serving (or, top off each glass with club soda) and add a few sliced cranberries to each glass.

For a little variation, you can top with a handful of pomegranate seeds, or booze it up with apple brandy or ginger brandy.
