Cranberry Apple Cider Sangria #CranberryWeek


This week we're celebrating the tart cranberry. Thanks to Caroline of Caroline's Cooking for hosting! See all the other cranberry creations being shared as we kick off Cranberry week today - follow #cranberryweek to see all the delicious recipes.



Who doesn't love a good sangria? Typically it's a summer libation...well, at least for me. I don't often make sangria after Labor Day. But I was inspired to create a wintery version for #CranberryWeek. This is perfect for fall and winter parties.

Ingredients 
  • 1 apple 
  • 1/2 C fresh organic cranberries, sliced in half or pierced with a skewer
  • 1 sprig fresh organic rosemary
  • 1 bottle white wine (I used a Sauvignon Blanc)
  • 1 C apple cider
  • 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


Procedure
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, cider, and 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.
