Apple Pie Sangria {Holiday Cheer}




 A friend of mine had given me a bottle of apple pie vodka. Interesting right? It had me intrigued. Not something I would normally drink. So after giving it a taste test it became apparent that it needed to turn into sangria. It was the best sangria I have ever has ever! It was meant to be and there was none and I mean none left. 





Apple cider, white wine, apple pie vodka, and lots of fruit all combined and refrigerated overnight makes this stuff amazing! You can even eat the soaked fruit. I did and it was delicious. It did have a little pep if you know what I mean.




This will surely spread the holiday cheer. Sometimes us adults just need a little extra, cheer that is. In the way of a cocktail. I know I sure do! There is nothing wrong with rewarding or indulging yourself once in a while. Perfect for a holiday gathering or just a friendly get together this is a drink your guests will surely love!

  2. Love Sangria, it goes soooo good during hot summer days! :D Try to add cognac or rum instead of vodka next time, they are also nice in it! :)

  3. I recently started sharing recipes on The Jenny Evolution and thought it would be terrific to have a group on FB where we can share our recipes not just with other bloggers but with people who are searching out recipes. That said, I’m launching a Food Blogger group! If we work together we can make this a great outlet for all of us. If you’d like to join, visit me here https://www.facebook.com/groups/341455112700743/

    To be approved post to the group, please follow the directions in the group description. Look forward to seeing you there!
