Autumnal Sangria

Hey friends,

I am an autumn child through and through but *damn* it got really cold real fast. Last morning when I left the house for work I quite literally froze for a few seconds debating in my head wheather I should run back upstairs and change into warmer clothes or not. The fact that I was already quite late won and so I sprinted into my car and immediately turned on the heating.

Those temperatures almost leave you with no other choice than to warm yourself from the inside. Yes sure – tea, hot chocolate and Co. do that job very well but there’s another exiciting way! Try this autumnal sangria recipe for a change: seasonal fruit, smooth red wine and a hint of cinnamon… the perfect way to relax after work.

Who says sangria is only for summer? This version with seasonal fruit and autumnal flavours is just as tasty & so easy make!

Ingredients

  • 150 g pomegranate seeds
  • 150 g blackberries
  • 1 apple
  • 1 stick of cinnamon
  • 160 ml Calvados

  • 100 ml clear apple juice
  • 200 ml cold still water (optional)

Instructions

  1. Wash blackberries and apple, then remove the core from the apple and slice thinly.
  2. Put both together with the pomegranate seeds and cinnamon stick into a big tumbler or jug (holding about 2 l). Then add Calvados and red wine and mix well. Refrigerate for about an hour.
  3. Top with cold apple juice and - depending on how strong you want the drink to be - some ice cold water. Mix well, pour into cups and serve!

Tipsy fruit, some sweetness & a big batch of autumn feeling… sounds like a perfect autumn night to me. What’s your favourite way to end the day?

Stay sweet & HAPPY MIXING!
