It’s officially September – everyone is going back to school, and if you’re already done with that, then you’re seeing the pumpkin spiced flavors in the aisles, the leaves slowly losing color, and the apples getting ready to pick (if you’re lucky enough to live in a place where this is possible – if you are, I’m officially jealous).
While the first day of fall is still a few weeks away, that doesn’t mean we can’t start getting ready for it ahead of time- and what better way to celebrate the anticipation with a drink or two? This seasonally-appropriate drink will help you get in the mood for falling leaves, hayrides, pumpkin picking, and corn mazes (again, if you live in the area to do so- which I wish I was)!
While pumpkins and their spiced flavors are the “it” flavor in fall, that doesn’t mean we don’t have a soft spot in our hearts and palates for apples as well. Everyone is hungry for apples, and this sparkling apple sangria will have your thirsty for apples as well!
The cinnamon flavors bring out the flavors of a traditional hot spiced apple cider, but the sparkling cider and the boozy yet spicy liquor kick it up a notch. Even though it’s not quite fall, and you might not live in a perfectly fall world, that doesn’t mean you can’t pretend to be there with this perfectly autumnal drink.
