Spiced Sangria

Written by Diana - September 22, 2011 3 Comments

Spiced Sangria – Wow, this looks so delicious I had to share.  I love all the fall fruit used to make this lovely spiced Sangria.

3-4 fresh figs, sliced (or 1 cup dried figs)
1-2 fresh gala apples, sliced
2-3 clementines, sliced (not peeled)
1 lemon, sliced
2 bottles VOGA Italia Merlot
3 cups sparkling apple cider
1 cup orange juice
½ cup brandy
½ cup dark spiced rum
4 cinnamon sticks
5 whole cloves

Instructions:
Slice apples and insert whole cloves directly into the fruit.
Combine all fruit slices in a glass pitcher and slowly pour in brandy and wine. Cover and chill from 2-24 hours (the longer, the better!)

Before serving, add sparkling cider and orange juice. Stir gently and serve over ice.

Makes about 15 servings.

    Oh that’s sangria with a punch! I bet you could heat that and serve it mulled as well.  Yum!

    What an unusual bottle.  Sounds like a delicious drink.
