Spiced Apple Cider Sangria

This cocktail is the perfect drink for any gathering during the fall as it is pretty much Autumn in a glass. Serve it along with your Thanksgiving meal and it will for sure be a favorite drink among your guests.

I purchased all the ingredients for this recipe at Trader Joes for a little under $22. This recipe serves at least 8 large glasses of sangria.

1 Bottle of Pinot Grigio (I used Trader Joe's Charles Shaw aka Two Buck Chuck)
2 1/2 Cups of Spiced Apple Cider
1 Cup Club Soda
1/2 Cup Brandy
3 Crisp Apples, Chopped
3 Pears, Chopped (it is okay if they are not ripe as they will soften as they set in the fridge)

Combine all ingredients together in a large pitcher and stir. Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.

If the mixture is too sweet for your taste, add an additional cup(s) of brandy.
If the mixture is too strong in alcohol, add an additional cup(s) of cider.
If the mixture is too concentrated for you, add an additional cup(s) of club soda.
