While sangria is typically viewed as a summertime beverage, lest we forget that fall has its fair share of warm days too.
This simple recipe from the new Eatertainment cookbook looks to fall fruits (apple and pear) and aromatic garnishes of rosemary and cinnamon to give some autumn flare to the chilled wine-based drink.
1 750 ml bottle sweet Canadian white wine
1 cup good quality apple cider
1 whole apple, sliced into ¼-inch-thick rounds (honeycrisp, Granny Smith, and ambrosia all work well)
1 whole 1 bosc pear, sliced into ¼-inch-thick wedges
1/4 cup pomegrante seeds
1 750 ml bottle Canadian sparkling wine
cinnamon sticks and rosemary sprigs, for garnish, optional
Place the wine and cider in a large pitcher.
Add the sliced apples, sliced pears, and pomegranate seeds.
Top with the sparkling wine, and stir gently to mix.
When ready to serve, ladle into stemless wine glasses and alternate garnishing with rosemary sprigs and cinnamon sticks.
