Have I ever mentioned that I love fall? I’m sure that I have. Other than the cozy sweaters, boots, soups and stews that go along with the cooler weather, I also love to entertain in the fall. It just seems like the perfect time to do it. Everyone wants a leisurely sip and chat. No hustle and bustle of summer. Here is a fantastic (and easy) fall cocktail that you can serve at your next gathering.
You will need a bottle of red wine (a red blend works best), a bottle of hard cider, sparkling water and cinnamon sugar.
Mix together the entire bottle of red wine with the entire bottle of cider. Add about a cup of sparkling water and 1 Tbsp of cinnamon sugar. Mix until the sugar is dissolved and serve at room temperature.
It has just enough sweetness but isn’t so sweet that you can’t stand it. If you prefer it sweeter, just add more cinnamon sugar. I used pear cider with mine just to add a little something different. It works well with apple cider or pear cider. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
