Celebrate National Sangria Day with this seasonal sipper featuring apple cider, cognac, and applejack.
While it is bit different than your traditional sangria, we think it’s the perfect fit for the season. When possible, opt for locally made apple cider and local apples as you will get a more nuanced flavor and a great way to engage with customers.
Want to make it a bit more appley? Try swapping the prosecco for a local hard cider and enjoy the change in flavor. For a cocktail with a lower ABV, nix the applejack and opt for a few dashes of aromatic bitters for added depth of flavor.
