it's Thirsty Thursday with your Galveston wedding planner

The last few weeks we have been heels down with the final Moments of the year, we actually missed a few Thirsty Thursday's but were back's libation is Honeycrisp Apple Sangria from Sally's baking Addition.  It's beautiful presentation is just perfect for your fall cocktail hour or family get gatherings.

  • 3 cinnamon sticks (plus more for garnish)
  • 2 honeycrisp apples, chopped
  • 1 orange, thinly sliced
  • 1 (750 ml) bottle red wine (I suggest a light-bodied Spanish variety)
  • 1 and 3/4 cups apple cider*
  • 1/2 cup brandy
  • 1/4 cup orange juice (or juice from 2 medium oranges)
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • club soda, to taste
Place the cinnamon sticks, apples, and orange slices in a large pitcher. Add wine, apple cider, brandy, orange juice, and lemon juice. Allow to sit in the refrigerator for 6 - 24 hours. Taste; if you'd like it to be sweeter, add 1-2 Tablespoons granulated sugar, honey, or agave.

If you'd like a cinnamon-sugar rim (highly recommended), simply moisten the rim of your glasses with water, turn the glass upside down and dip it into a mix of cinnamon and sugar. Pour in the sangria with fruit* and add a splash of club soda (this unsweetened fizz is wonderful with the sangria!). Garnish with a cinnamon stick, if desired. Cheers!

Enjoy !

  1. Dear I really liked your post. Thanks for sharing!! Well I am searching for a good wedding planner for my wedding arrangements. I feel a wedding planner offers many services to help you have a great wedding that we can’t do by ourselves. Have you any recommendations?
