Red Apple Sangria

Red Apple Sangria | Cooking on the Front Burner #sangria

This tasty beverage is one of my favorites for fall - it's a copycat version of a drink that still may be on the Applebee's menu.  I know sangria can be a year-round drink but the combo of the wine and apple liqueur reminds me of fall time.  I first noticed this drink a couple years ago when we went out with friends and saw it on the table next to me. I decided to give it a try and once I did I was on the search for the recipe.  A good friend of mine found this version and I say it comes pretty close to the original!

Since you may want to serve this to a larger crowd, you could adjust the recipe accordingly and top with the Sierra Mist after they are poured!  Enjoy!
