The 2020 Holidays Recipe Collection
How you doin’? It’s that time of the week again—it’s Happy Hour Friday. This is a great fall-winter drink using the fruits of the season. We “invented” this drink while working on a Menu Optimization project in Washington State—the Land of Apples.
We all know Sangria is a fantastic dinner party drink because it's so unpretentiously beautiful with chunks of fresh fruit floating in a brilliant wine punch. It’s easy to make ahead, drink and share. With Sangria, no one gets left behind trapped in the kitchen making drinks for others. My Apple Cider Sangria is as light and refreshing as a traditional summer berry-citrus sangria… filled with the colors and flavors of fall.
For this recipe I used apples, pears and cranberries. Where you might traditionally use orange juice and brandy, we've swapped it for apple cider and apple brandy, and topped it off with light rosé wine. Here’s what you get… an apple-forward, lightly sweet punch the color of a fall sunset. It’s okay to eat the floating fruit; it stays crisp and sweet in the bottom of the glass.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Chill time: 1-2 hours
Yield: 4 servings
1 tart apple, cored and thinly sliced (I prefer Envy Apples)
1 large pear, cored and thinly sliced
1 naval orange, peeled and thinly sliced
1/2 cup “bruised” cranberries
1/3 cup Triple Sec liqueur (or other orange liqueur)
1/4 cup apple brandy
1 cup filtered apple cider
1 bottle rosé wine
Cinnamon sticks for stirrers/garnish
Sugar rim the glass (optional)
Covid-19 quip of the Day: “With all this time on my hands lately, I’ve been thinking truly deep thoughts… if man (and woman) evolved from monkeys and apes, why do we still have all these monkeys and apes?”
