Canadian Maple Fall Sangria
You guys are going to LOVE this amazing Canadian Maple Fall Sangria drink I made this past weekend. Read below to see how I put it together, and feel free to click on the photo to save it for yourself! Bar-tending is all about having fun and I know you'll enjoy making this...you might even make up your own version along the way.
1 bottle of white wine: Grey Monk Pinot Gris is my favorite.
1 cup cloudy apple juice: Simply Apple is my favorite
2 TBSP Canadian maple syrup
1/2 cup each of chopped fruits: gala apple, bosc pear, navel orange & lemon
1/2 cup frozen cranberries
4 rosemary sprigs
4-8 dried apple slices
4-8 cinnamon sticks
What could be better than a mix of fall flavors and sassy sangria? It's the perfect September drink. In this post I'll teach you how easy it is to create the perfect fall drink to celebrate the first day of fall tomorrow! Honestly, I'd drink this any time of year.
Here's what I used:
1 bottle of white wine (I used this amazing Grey Monk Pinot Gris from the Okanagan)
Chop up some fall colored fruits like, red apple, orange, brown bosc pear and lemon. I used about half of each fruit. I like to cut them into one inch pieces so they fit easily into the glass.
Add the chopped fruit to a glass pitcher.
Pour in the entire bottle of white wine.
Then add one cup of cloudy apple juice. I love the Simply Apple juice brand.
Add in a half cup of frozen cranberries.
Stir in two tablespoons of yummy Canadian maple syrup
Now put it in the fridge overnight or for at least 6 hours.
Let's talk garnishes. I thought it would be fun to add the fresh scent of rosemary, dried apple and cinnamon as a garnish. They just look so pretty and the fragrance is amazing too.
After it's done in the fridge, fill some mason jar glasses with a bit of ice. Place some of the marinated fruit into the glasses. I like to ladle it in before the pour. That way you get lots and lots of yummy sangria in your glass. Add your sprig of the rosemary, cinnamon sticks and dried apple slices. Serve right away. Makes four glasses of sangria.
I wish I had made more because it was gone too fast! Enjoy you guys!!
