Celebrate the beginning of the Fall season with a homemade sangria. This Autumn Sangria is made with Mike’s Hard Blood Orange and plenty of fresh fruit.
Fall is in full swing here at A Savory Feast, even if Florida weather doesn’t agree just yet. Last week I had a friend over for dinner and decided to use Mike’s Hard Blood Orange to make a homemade sangria. This season flavor of Mike’s is only here for a short time, so get it while you can!
I’ve been making everything with either apple or pumpkin lately. Those two ingredients just scream “Fall” to me. Loading this sangria up with fresh apples make it the perfect drink for Fall.
I’ve always wanted to try making my own sangria, so I knew this would be the perfect opportunity. It was so much fun to make! Slice up apples and oranges and add them to a pretty pitcher. Then, add in the Mike’s, wine and club soda for a gorgeous Fall drink.
This Autumn Sangria is great for entertaining, whether it’s a dinner with friends or a Halloween party. It takes a little bit of prep to cut up the fruit, but you’ll have it ready in minutes. It’s such a beautiful drink that is sure to impress your guests!
You’ll want to make sure you serve it almost immediately after making it, as it tastes best right away. If you have to wait for a few minutes, make sure to keep it in the fridge so it stays nice and cold.
You can add a nice touch by reserving a couple slices of apples and oranges to garnish the edge of the glasses. Cute paper straws make it extra fancy, too!
