While sangria might be a distinctly summertime drink, this apple cider version of the alcoholic punch showcases that the beverage can easily be adapted to reflect the different tastes of various seasons. This sangria features a richly spiced apple cider base topped with sliced apples, Triple Sec and white wine.

Sangria is a delicious blended drink that incorporates a variety of alcohols together to make a tantalizing fruit-based punch. This version by Smitten Kitchen adapts the drink for fall mixing fresh or homemade apple cider with white wine, orange Triple Sec liqueur, apple brandy and dry white wine. The apple cider is first converted into a syrup then mixed with the liquors and a fizzy soda. The drink can be further garnished with slices of lemon and an array of apple chunks.
