This fall sangria is absolutely delicious iced, but if you want, you can always throw it on the stove for a warm mulled wine type variation! A bonus is that it will make your place smell amazing. 

If you end up heating this sangria, just leave out the apple and orange slices and serve those on the side instead so they don’t get mushy.

    Hi Anne! Your posts are truncated in my RSS reader. Hopefully not a permanent change (I only click through to comment). Sangria looks excellent.

      Unfortunately it likely will be a permanent change – I’ve been trying to avoid doing it because I know it’s a hassle to click through, but I’ve been having a lot of issues with other spam websites scraping my content onto their sites and after talking with some tech friends they said usually spam sites do this by auto copying my RSS feed. They said switching to a partial feed often majorly reduces the issue. So I’m going to see if this helps the situation and if it does I’ll have to stick with partial. Bummer, I know!

    Sounds like a tasty fall version of the gluhwein they serve at Christmas in Germany – with an extra kick (the bourbon)! Must try!

    I see someone else also mentioned, this, so I apologize for the redundancy. I too read blogs via a reader, only clicking through to comment. I’ve enjoyed your blog posts and understand your decision. I’ll look to other sites for healthful eating information.

      I know, it’s a pain, but it does seem to have helped a lot with the scraper website issue I was having so I’m going to stick with it. I hope you’ll continue to pop by on occasion. :) Thanks for reading!

    This looks like a great option for Thanksgiving. Can you suggest any dry reds? I never know what to buy when it comes to wine.

      I would suggest a cabernet sauvignon or pinot noir… pinot noir is my fave but either will work! And it doesn’t need to be expensive or anything fancy since it’s just getting mixed anyway, so go for affordable. ;)

    Sounds delicious!


  1. […] we had a delicious spread of appetizers, and dueling sangrias – a white sangria, and my red Easy Fall Sangria! Both were hits but I liked mine better, of course. […]
