How To Make A Delicious Honeycrisp Apple Sangria
Hey guys! It's Lisa from the Mommies Whine Time podcast. If you've ever listened to our podcast (if haven't, you should) you know that us ladies sip on a different cocktail every week. Well, this week was my choice and I really wanted something to do with fall. Fall is my favorite season. So, of course, I went on handy old Pinterest. I was looking up fall martinis, but all of them had vodka and that is just not a favorite of Tiff's or mine!! Well, I found a Honeycrisp Apple Sangria. Totally up mine and the girls' alley. At first I was like, "Uh, looks good, but making homemade sangrias can usually get expensive and take some time to make." Nope, not this one. Super easy and pretty cheap. I bought just a cheap red wine and one of the cheaper brandies available. I don't even think it took me 10 minutes to make altogether. I will definitely make this one again and recommend it to anyone who loves a sangria and fall flavors!!! As I'm writing this blog for you guys, I'm enjoying the leftover fruit that has been soaking all night with a little brandy poured over it. Hope you enjoy!
