Spiced Cider Sangria

I love Trader Joes. Don't you?

Hello 2 buck chuck. And fresh, inexpensive produce. 

And fun seasonal drink blends like Pear Cinnamon Cider. 

Remember my Summertime Sangria?

We'll we're about to deck it's halls. With cider.

It's just as delicious as it sounds.

Spicy cider with hints of clove, cinnamon and pear, all nuzzled up to a bottle of red wine and tinseled with fruit.

Yes, please.

Spiced Cider Sangria

1 bottle Cabernet Savignon
2 cups Trader Joes Pear Cinnamon Cider (or cider of choice)
1 Orange, sliced into triangles
2 apples, sliced into 1" triangles

Combine wine and cider, mix well. (Add more cider to desired sweetness.) Add half of fruit, and put in fridge to chill 2-3 hours. Serve over ice with extra fruit.

"God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.” Luke 1:26-28
