Subject: Fw: AUTUMN SANGRIA WITH PINOT NOIR AND APPLE CIDER
I just love this drink, in fact I've made this almost every weekend this summer. I sent an excerpt from the website that will give you the directions on how to make this. Enjoy ~ Ann. "Typically made with a base of red wine combined with fruit juice, fresh fruit, soda water and sometimes brandy, Sangria is a beverage that’s primarily served and consumed in the warmer months of summer while the fruit can be freshly picked and an ice cold libation is most welcome. However, despite the cooling weather, we think we’ve managed to come up with two delicious Autumn-inspired Sangria recipes that are worthy of a new tradition at your Thanksgiving table.
Our first version is created using the more traditional red wine base (we chose a Pinot Noir) mixed with apple cider, chopped seasonal fruits like apples and pears, and cinnamon sticks for a kick of spice. The sweetness from the cider and fruit is often enough to balance the flavor, but you could add a tablespoon or two of molasses to bring out a deeper autumnal sweetness if you’d prefer."
