Fall Sangria October 26, 2012October 30, 2012 Nicola Quinn drink, recipe There’s no doubt about it. Fall is definitely one of my favorite seasons ever ever ever.In Tenerife, we don’t really get seasons – so much so that the island is often marketed as ‘The Island of Eternal Spring’. Although whoever thinks 100°F+ in August is spring weather, I’ve no idea. I’m always eager to travel somewhere in northern Europe during fall, just so I can see the golden hues of the leaves in the trees and feel the crispness in the air.Another one of my ultimate favorite things has got to be sangria. Whenever I don’t know what to drink, I normally opt for sangria. Yeah, it makes me look like a complete tourist, but I don’t care. I’ve rarely experienced a bad glass of Sangria – even the stuff that comes out of a carton here is good!So what better way to celebrate my favorite season by serving my favorite drink? I swapped the traditional fruit salad mix of fruits for typical fall fruits and added a touch warm spice to make it the ideal drink to snuggle up with on a chilly night.Fall SangriaPrep Time: 10 minutesTotal Time: 10 minutesYield: 1 standard sangria jug (around 6 glasses)Ingredients3 cups red wine1 teaspoon mixed spice2 tablespoons powdered sugar3 tablespoons Cointreau (or triple sec)2 tablespoons cranberry liqueur2 cups lemonade1/2 orange, chopped into segments1/2 apple, chopped into segmentsRecipePour the red wine into a sangria jug and stir in the mixed spice and powdered sugar until dissolved.Add the Cointreau, cranberry liqueur, lemonade and fruit.Stir well and place in the fridge for at least 1 hour for the flavors to develop.3.1http://pinkrecipebox.com/fall-sangria/© Pink Recipe BoxHere are the link parties I link up to.
