Autumn and winter’s favourite flavour takes center stage in this festive cocktail with apple cider, pumpkin puree, fall fruits and a nice dry white wine! This Apple Cider Sangria is bursting with flavour and it’s the perfect excuse to throw a fall gathering.
I used the fresh Blush Lane Organic Orchard apple cider which I believe is what makes this cocktail (if you haven’t tried it, it’s a must! But any cider will work). I also used the Astrolabe Voyager Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand which is a medium-bodied wine with flavours of white peach and citrus with a dry, mineral finish but you can easily sub it with any of your dry white wine favourites!
- 2 cups apple cider (I used the Blush Lane Organic Orchard apple cider)
- 1–2 tbsp pumpkin puree (depending on how much pumpkin flavour you like)
- 1 cup sparkling water
- 1 bottle of dry white wine (I used Astrolabe Voyager Sauvignon Blanc)
- 1 pear, sliced
- 1 apple, sliced
- 1/2 cup fresh cranberries
- 1 orange, sliced
- cinnamon sticks (if you wish)
Whisk apple cider and pumpkin in a pitcher. Whisk well until pumpkin puree fully dissolves.
Add one bottle of dry white wine such as sauvignon blanc and whisk gently
Add all sliced fruit and put in fridge for 1-2 hours (you can easily leave it to sit for longer)
Remove from fridge and stir. Add one cup of the sparkling water and ice. Serve over ice with cinnamon sticks if you wish.
