Cranberry Apple Cider Sangria

Cranberry Apple Cider Sangria

This Cranberry Apple Cider Sangria is the result of a long night of experimenting. It’s sweet, tart and refreshing. The perfect signature drink for the holidays. This Cranberry Apple Cider Sangria recipe is absolutely delicious.

Sometimes I get these crazy ideas in my head. Lately I’ve been on a signature drink kick. I’m not sure why but it is what it is. So my initial idea was an Apple Cider Sangria. Most people loved that but I just wasn’t feeling it. It might have been a bit too much cinnamon and spice for me. With the apple cider and the spiced rum.

Of course, it was the fav of my family and friends. It could also be because I’m not a big apple cider fan. Well, that was until I added the wonderfulness of the homemade cranberry sauce. It all works really well together. The sweet of the cider, the spice from the rum and tart from the cranberry sauce. The Torrontes wine I used has a bit of a citrus undertone which worked well to this recipe.
