We are so excited for festive fall recipes with loved ones at home. Our friend Amanda Wilens recently shared her mouth-watering apple pomegranate sangria recipe with us. Keep reading below to try this recipe.
1. In a pitcher or large jar, pour in the wine, whiskey, juices, maple syrup (add more if needed), and sliced apples. Stir and let sit in the fridge for 1-12 hours. The longer it sits, the better the flavor. You want a minimum of 1 hour, but overnight is probably best.
2. When ready to serve, add in ice and ginger beer or sparkling water.
3. Pour into glasses and garnish.
Make in advance: One of the vital parts of sangria is that it has enough time to sit and soak up the flavors of the fresh fruit. So, I recommend at least 8 hours or overnight. The longer it can soak up flavors, the better. And with this one, you do have a simple syrup and puree, so it may go faster. But I would say the longer, the better. You don’t want it to sit too long either, just so the fresh fruit doesn’t get too funky. So maybe just the night before or morning of, is best.
Batching: This is in 1 large batch. However, if you are making this for a dispenser, you could definitely times it by 2 or 3 for a dispenser and it would be the perfect pretty drink for that! You could still add in your ice and many of your mint garnishes, and then have a bowl to the side filled with the flower garnishes for guests to top off themselves.
