Fall Apple Cider Sangria

This delicious white wine sangria combines all the flavors of fall, like apple cider, cinnamon, citrus and cranberries. It is perfect for entertaining during the holidays. The beauty of this drink is that the longer it sits in the fridge, the better it tastes. This is great because you can whip up a batch in advance. I like to make mine in the morning if entertaining in the evening. If I am serving it at brunch, I make it the night before. My favorite white wine to use for sangria is Pinot Grigio, but you can use any dry white that you like. Fall Apple Cider Sangria is perfect to serve at Thanksgiving , or any fall gathering. Just make sure you have a large pitcher, it will be gone very quickly. Enjoy!
