Apple Cider Sangria

When people hear I’m making sangria for an event, this is by far the most requested. Sadly it’s seasonal due to when some of the liquor is available.

Version 2
Tastes just as good, but less ingredients than Version 1

4 bottles of Red Table Wine, 750ml each
2 cups Halloween Wine (from IL River Winery)
1 1/2 cup Cinnamon Simple Syrup
2 cups Apple Pie Vodka
2 cups Cinnamon Brandy
4 cups Apple Cider
1 cup Apple Liqueur
1/2 cup Sweet Vermouth

1 cup of Grapes (cut in half)
4 sliced Apples
4 sliced Pears
8-10 cinnamon sticks

Let sit overnight preferably, but at least 4-5 hours before serving.

Makes a little over 2 gallons of sangria
