Mulled Apple Cider Sangria

Red wine sangria is one of my favourite cocktails – a classic during the summer and a new favourite of mine during the winter season as well. My new favourite however? Mulled Apple Cider Sangria. That’s right: combining two winter and summer flavours for one deliciously spicy and sweet drink that will have you wanting an excuse to stay in.

This Mulled Apple Cider Sangria recipe is great because you can enjoy it both hot and cold, and boiling these heartwarming spices brings a beautiful smell to your home. The trick here is to use cinnamon sticks and cloves, as opposed to ground spices, and you only need a touch to bring an amazing flavour to this cocktail recipe.

With the holiday season coming up, I’ve been going overboard with the recipe development and inviting friends over to try some of my more recent creations. Over the weekend, I was lucky enough to have TWO girls nights in, and this Mulled Apple Cider Sangria was one of the stars of the show (I’m starting to think people like my food more than me…LOL)

Since having some problems with antibiotics, I’ve really been trying to research foods that are good for digestion and intestinal health. Besides a newly renewed dedication to clean eating and one pan meals, I’ve also been looking at how fun foods like dark chocolate and red wine are good for your digestion. I’ll take any excuse to get my antioxidants okay…?

But seriously though, this Mulled Apple Cider Sangria is like fall in a glass. You should really consider adding spices to your cocktails this season. Not only is it super trendy, but it adds an easy touch of uniqueness that will make you look like an entertaining pro. Of course if you’re really entertaining, you may want to look into some new cocktail glasses and centrepieces, but I suppose for now this drink will do.
