Best Autumn Flavored Sangria for the Holidays

The flavors of Fall make some of the best cocktails, but they make a magical combination in this Autumn sangria. It’s great to serve up at the holidays, or for a quiet dinner with the family or some friends.

There are different ways you can make Sangria. You can do it with either Red or White wine. You can make it fruity or a bit spicy like a Mulled Wine. In this Autumn sangria, the mixture of pear, apple, orange, and pomegranate flavors offer a fragrant bouquet and delicious taste. We also added a bit of cinnamon to give it a little extra something.

As for the wine, I suggest using a Cabernet Sauvignon if you want a dry, milder wine or a Merlot for a nice bite and bolder tasting sangria. Also, don’t break the bank on an expensive bottle of wine for sangria. The wine will absorb the flavors of what you add to it, so go cheap and save yourself some money. Sangria can make simple table wine go a long way.

This is how you make our Autumn Sangria!
