Unwind in the Fall

Thank God... Fall is just around the corner!! I don't know about the rest of the country, but we Southerners have had just about enough sunshine and heat! I'm the type of person who usually loves summer and all of the summer parties (and summer cocktails tehe), but this year was different. I've actually been looking forward to fall. And I have found a FABULOUS mixed drink just for autumn. Now I swear by Pinterest. You will find that I reference this site a good deal in my blog because it has seriously made my life a lot easier. Aside from being addictive, that is. Check out the recipe below and feel free to leave a comment after you've tried it. 


 Honeycrisp Apple Sangria

Ingredients:

2 honeycrisp apples
One 750-milliliter bottle un-oaked Chardonnay
1/2 cup peach schnapps
1/4 cup orange blossom honey
2 oranges- 1 quartered
1 lemon - quartered
1 lime - quartered
2 cinnamon sticks
2 quarter-size slices of fresh ginger
3 whole cloves
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Ice
Club soda

Directions:

Peel, core and chop one of the apples. In a bowl, combine the Chardonnay, schnapps and honey. Add the quartered orange, lemon, lime, cinnamon sticks, chopped apple, ginger and cloves and refrigerate overnight. (If you don't want to wait that long at least give it 4 hours)
Strain the sangria into a pitcher. Peel, core and finely chop the remaining apple. Peel, section and chop the remaining orange. Mix the apple and orange in a bowl.
On a small plate, blend the sugar and cinnamon. Moisten the rims of wine glasses and dip in the cinnamon sugar to coat. Fill the glasses with ice. Pour in the sangria until three-quarters full. Top with a splash of club soda. Garnish with a spoonful of the chopped apple and orange.
