Easy Fall Sangria

Since Mack and I are leaving town for Thanksgiving, as are most of our friends, we decided to have a celebration beforehand. This is only the second Thanksgiving that Mack and I have been on our own, and the first that I've actually cooked for. I was a little nervous about making the food, but with the help of my friend, we had a delicious meal. We had a blast...and a lot of pie (recipes to come!). Anyway, I found this delicious fall sangria recipe on Facebook. Here is the video! I followed the recipe they listed in the comments almost exactly and just wanted to share this gem with you. 


6 gala apples

3 pears (I just used regular pears)

750mL Fireball

1 bottle Pinot Grigio (I just grabbed a small, cheap $5 bottle)

1/2 gallon non-alcoholic apple cider

1 liter club soda

Cinnamon sticks for garnish (optional)


Cube the apples and pears. Place in a bowl and pour in the Fireball. Let the fruit soak in the alcohol for 2 hours, covered. Once the fruit has soaked, add in other ingredients. Serve with cinnamon sticks as garnish - and don't forget to scoop out some delicious fruit to add to your drink!

Hope you guys enjoy this recipe and let me know if you make it. It's really yummy and fun and great for a Thanksgiving celebration.
