Envy-able Sangria #FreshTastyValentines #sponsor #giveaway

Who doesn't love a good sangria? Typically it's a summer libation...well, at least for me. I don't think I've ever made sangria after Labor Day. But I was inspired to create a wintery version when I received some crisp apples from one of the sponsors for my multi-day, multi-blogger event - Fresh Tasty Valentines.

So, with apples from Envy Apples and wine from another event sponsor - Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi - I bring you my Envy-able Sangria. I even headed out, during a break in the rain, with new clippers from Casabella to get some rosemary from the garden.

And, on this final day of our event, I figured a nice libation to pour into glass and retreat to the couch was a must. Salud!

  • 1 apple (I used Envy Apples)
  • 1/2 C fresh organic cranberries, sliced in half or pierced with a skewer
  • 1 sprig fresh organic rosemary
  • 1 bottle Sauvignon Blanc (I used Woodbridge)
  • 4 T organic granulated sugar
  • 1 C sparkling water
  • fresh organic rosemary sprigs, for garnish
  • organic granulated sugar, for garnish
  • Also need: 1 L jar with a lid

Core and dice the apples. Place them at the bottom of the jar. Put the cranberries and rosemary into the jar and sprinkle with sugar. Pour in the wine and the sparkling water. Place the lid on the jar and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

To make your garnish, lay rosemary sprigs on a plate and spray with water. Dip the rosemary into granulated sugar. Let dry. To serve, pour into glasses and garnish with sugared rosemary.
