Nothing says “holiday” like a pretty glass filled with fruity sangria. By the glass or by the punch bowl, you’ll love this recipe and will want to serve it at your next winter potluck.
2 oz apple brandy (I prefer Laird’s Straight Apple Brandy)
2 oz Prosecco (Ruffino does the trick)
1 oz cranberry juice
1 dash cinnamon
chopped green apples
fresh rosemary sprigs
1 dash orange bitters
Combine ingredients in an oversized wine glass filled with ice. For a lighter and less boozy drink, top with soda water. These proportions are measured for one cocktail, but this sangria is best served in a pitcher or punch bowl, to all of your closest friends. To keep the evanescence of the Prosecco intact when making this in a large batch, place a cold metal spoon in the pitcher as well. Enjoy and be merry!
