Apple Cider Sangria

Here are two variations of this recipe, one with white wine, and one with red! Both delicious concoctions have all the best flavors of fall and are loaded with tons of juicy fruits. If you're heading to the orchard, be sure to pick up some cider and apples to make these festive fall drinks! For the white wine sangria, we recommend Reserve Pinot Grigio, Michigan Awesome White Blend, or Braganini Reserve Albarino! For the red wine sangria, we recommend a dry red such as Braganini Reserve Merlot, Coastline Red, or Cabernet Franc.
