Festive Champagne Cider Sangria Recipe

I made this sangria for Thanksgiving & it was a huge hit.  To quote my husband’s aunt, it was “the best sangria EVER!.”   So I figured I’d share!

I originally found this recipe on Pinterest & it’s from the blog kirantarun.com.   To make for a larger group I increased the cider & wine amounts in the recipe & decided to leave out the dried figs.   I prefer sangria to be more winey & less sugary or sweet tasting. This is a perfectly festive sangria to add to your holiday gatherings.

For my version of this recipe I used:

3 large honeycrisp apples, sliced

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1 bottle (4 cups) of Cabernet Savignon

1 bottle of cider (1 quart)

4 whole cinnamon sticks

1/2 tbsp whole cloves

1/8 tsp nutmeg

Mix it all together & allow to steep overnight.  Add champagne to glass when serving.
