Autumn Sangria Recipe
posted on September 22nd, 2017 by Leslie Thomas
Ah, Autumn. For many, it begins in September but for those of us in Southern California, it doesn’t start really feeling like Fall until mid-October. Nevertheless, there’s just something warm and fuzzy about that Autumn time feel. Whether it’s the smells of pumpkin coming from every coffee shop or the baskets of Gala apples at every market, Fall definitely has a special kind of appeal.
But since it’s still quite warm in SoCal, we need a way to celebrate the beginning of Fall that won’t make us sweat.
An Autumn inspired Sangria seems like the most logical way to do just that.
Pomegranate Fig Sangria
1 bottle sweet white wine
4 fresh figs, halved
1 apple, cored and sliced
1 cup pomegranate juice
1 ripe orange, sliced
1/2 cup Brandy
1 bottle sparking water
In a large container or pitcher with airtight lid, add the sliced oranges, apple, figs, pomegranate juice, and Brandy. Pour the wine on top. Stir and refrigerate for 12 hours. When ready to drink, pour sangria over ice in tall glasses and top with sparkling water.
