This juicy and light sangria only takes a few minutes to assemble in a large pitcher and is perfect for holiday parties. It can be made earlier in the day and refrigerated so the drink has time to develop a more fruity flavor. The holiday version of this cocktail is kicked up a notch with a hint of brandy and a garnish of cinnamon.

Key Ingredients in This Recipe

  • White wine – White wine is the base for this sangria. Use a dry white wine for since it won’t overpower the dish by making it too sweet. While I will use just about any white wine in a pinch I prefer using pinot grigio in this recipe. Since it is the base of the sangria I recommend using a mid-level wine.
  • Apple cider – Apple cider is made by pressing apples for their juice. Its served unfiltered which typically sets it apart from it’s clearer, sweeter counterpart – apple juice though some companies use the terms interchangeably.
