The boys came stomping through the snow (yes, snow) and shouted out excitement that tomorrow is Thanksgiving.
Those are all fantastico, but my fave thing is the simple counting of blessings.
I do the 1000 Gifts thing throughout the year and can’t recommend it more highly. But there’s something miraculous about the bunch of us giving thanks together with purpose. I look forward to this gratefulness gathering with gusto!
If you’re hosting the gathering this season, whether on Thanksgiving or another fall-winter day, here’s a yummy-delish and super simple cocktail you can totally prepare last minute.
I mean, with all the garlic mashed potatoes and flaky apple pie, nobody really has time to tend the bar. With this apple cider sangria, you don’t have to. Whip it up in mere minutes and enjoy. Here’s how…
Mix up fresh apple cider, cognac, and dry white wine or champagne (yum.)
This mixture can be made right before serving or up to a couple hours beforehand. Serve it up in a pitcher, punch bowl, or beverage dispenser, if you’ve got a large-ish crowd. I like to have sliced apples, cinnamon sticks, and ice on the side for people to garnish as they please.
Enjoy, and Happy Thanksgiving!
Easy Apple Cider Sangria
- 1 bottle, 750 ml dry white wine (or champagne)
- 2 cups fresh apple cider
- ½ cup cognac
- Optional Garnishes: thinly sliced apples, cinnamon sticks, ice
- In a large pitcher or drink dispenser, mix together the wine, apple cider, and cognac. This mixture can be made up to 2 hours ahead of time and chilled (unless you’re using champagne; in that case, add the champagne just before serving.)
- Serve chilled apple sangria with garnishes as desired.
