‘Tis the season. Well, almost. In a just under two weeks, friends and family will come together for Thanksgiving. It’s a day to be thankful for all that we have in our lives. It’s also a time to show off your bartending chops. Here is a drink perfect for that and it is super easy to make. Courtesy of Food and Wine, this is the Hard Cider Sangria. Oh, keep in mind, this recipe serves four people.
1 cup quartered and thinly sliced unpeeled green, yellow and red apples
1 navel orange, quartered and thinly sliced across
1 cup apple juice, chilled
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup apple brandy
One 22-ounce bottle hard apple cider, chilled
Combine everything, minus the cider, in a pitcher and let cool. When you’re ready to serve, add the cider and stir. Pour into tall glasses with ice.
