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!
- 2/3 cup Cabernet Sauvignon
- 2 1/2 oz apple liqueur (not green colored)
- 1 oz grenadine
- 3 oz cranberry juice
- 3 oz pineapple juice
- Sierra Mist
- Garnish (2 of) – apple ball, orange wedge, lime wedge, maraschino cherry
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!
