If you’re a regular reader, you’ve heard this before: Sangria is the perfect party drink! You can make it in advance, vary the ingredients for whatever theme you have (like apples for a fall/ harvest dinner party) and it serves a crowd. If you like hard cider, you will love this sangria. There’s just enough apple flavor without it being too strong or too sweet. It makes about 6 servings when served over ice, which was just the right amount for 4 of us. It isn’t the type of drink you want to sip all night, but it’s a great way to start off. Double the recipe (or more) for larger crowds. This is a nice signature cocktail to serve on Halloween or Thanksgiving.
I was able to find an organic hard cider at Fairway (upstairs), but any hard cider will do. Be sure to serve this cold and over a lot of ice.
