Simple Winter Sangria
- 1 bottle Adirondack Winery Wild Red or Pinot Gris
- 1 Apple
- 1 Pear
- 1 Orange
- 1 Lemon (optional)
- 3 Cinnamon Sticks
- Lemon Lime Soda
Just about any wine will taste great in this simple sangria made with fresh fruits that you can find all winter long. Wild Red & Pinot Gris are 2 of our favorites … and it’s so easy to make you can try it again and again with different wines to see what you like most!
Microwave lemon and orange for 20 seconds and roll on counter to loosen juices. Puncture skin slightly all over with fingernails to release oils. Slice into ¼ inch rounds. Core apple and cut into ¼ inch slices. Place lemon, orange, apple and cinnamon sticks into pitcher. Cut pear into slices, or if using canned pears, drain most of syrup out and pour into pitcher. Pour wine over fruit. Muddle contents of pitcher with a wooden spoon and mix. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Top with soda (to taste) immediately before serving and enjoy!
