What pairs perfectly with your couch and some heavy knits? A warming cocktail featuring our favorite fall ingredients and select IUWT wines, of course. This weekend, stock the bar cart and treat yourself to one of these cozy drinks.
from Winzerwald Winery
A great transition cocktail from the fruity sangrias of summer to the warm winter Glühwein.
Autumn Sangria mixes the cinnamon and spice of the Glühwein with the delicious apple cider and fresh fruit flavors all served chilled for a special Fall treat.
- 2 bottles Winzerwald Winery Glühwein
- 2 cups sparkling cider (or pure apple cider)
- 1 small pear
- 1 small green apple
- 1 small red apple
- 1 small orange
Pour bottles of Glühwein into a pitcher. Add the cider and stir to mix. Thoroughly rinse and dry all the fruit. Cut thin slices of each fruit and add to the pitcher.
Cover top of pitcher with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve. This can be prepared a day or two in advance, which will infuse more fruit flavor into the wine and spice into the fruit. Add a few pieces of the soaked fruit to each serving glass. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
