Farmhouse Fall Sangria..... Farm Wife Approved!

Farmhouse Fall Sangria.... It's as good as it sounds. Red wine, delicious fruit, cinnamon, oranges, ciders, cloves.... It just screams fall. And although I prefer it cold, this would be a great warmed sangria - almost like a wassail. In fact I might do that for our upcoming annual Hayride/Fall Party.

I normally triple (or quadruple) this recipe when hosting parties. In this instance I just made it based on one bottle of wine. Just enough (barely) for a pitcher.

Get your cinnamon sticks and cloves ready then cut up your apple and orange. Add all to the pitcher  (i leave a few pieces of fruit for the individual glasses)..

Add 1 bottle of red wine

Then one cup or orange juice and one cup of apple cider....  

I have never added beer to it before... This has been my go-to sangria recipe for years, but tonight as I was getting outlay juices I saw an Apple Beer and thought 'what the heck - I bet that's a pretty good addition. And it was. Kind of cut the bite of the sweet fruit and juice and wine... SO having an apple beer isn't going to be a MUST. But it was a good addition this time.

Perfect for the back porch while your watching your farmer work in the field.

And even as picture perfect that these photos look I want to share real life with you.... I spilled this whole pitcher of Sangria on the floor about 3 minutes after these pictures were taken. I was lucky enough to miss my area rug and break the fall of my pitcher so it didn't break.... But I lost all of my sangria..... and spent my evening mopping the floors. Oh well - I will use it as an excuse to make it again.
