It’s fall y’all! Is there any better way to celebrate fall than with a virtual pumpkin party?
Sara over at Cake Over Steak has organized a HUGE pumpkin party (#virtualpumpkinparty) that is not to be missed. A ton of amazing bloggers have gotten together to share all things pumpkin today. The full list of awesome recipes can be found here. You will find any pumpkin recipe your heart desires plus a lot that you’ve never thought of.
What’s a virtual pumpkin party without a cocktail? NOT a party at all, so I’m bringing the booze!
This Apple Cider Sangria is so packed with fall flavors, I know you will love it. It’s super simple to make with apple cider, seltzer water and your favorite dry white wine. Add a spoonful or two of pumpkin and that’s it! If you prefer to use a flavored seltzer, go with an orange or other citrus one.
I used sauvignon blanc but a pinot grigio or other dry white wine would work well too.
What to Put In Your Sangria…
- pomegranate seeds
- cinnamon sticks
- the sky’s the limit!
The fruit is the best part because it gets soaked with the wine – you must eat it. I mean really the boozy apples, pears and oranges are the bomb!
