APPLE CIDER SANGRIA
1 bottle Pinot Grigio
2 1/2 cups Fresh Apple Cider
1 cup Club Soda or plain water
1/2 cup of Cinnamon Simply Syrup (recipe below) OR 1/2 cup Cointreau, Triple Sec or Grand Marnier
2 apples, cored and chopped~other fruit would be tasty as well
Stir all to combine and allow to mellow in fridge for an hour before serving.
CINNAMON SIMPLE SYRUP
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 cinnamon stick 3 inches long
6 or so whole allspice
2 inch piece of fresh ginger
a pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
In a small saucepan bring all ingredients to a boil, reduce heat and keep at a rolling boil for 5 minutes. I only used 1/2 of the quantity for the sangria, but feel free to add to taste. I put the cinnamon stick and allspice into the sangria as well.
