Thirsty Thursday: Cider Beer Sangria Recipe

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 (12-ounce) cold bottles hard cider (mine was heavy on the apple flavor)
  • 1 (12-ounce) cold bottle wheat beer (a fall/octoberfest version is excellent!)
  • 1 1/2 cold cups apple cider
  • 1 cup cold ginger ale (or ginger beer! if you want it to have more of a bite)
  • 1/2 cup apple brandy
  • 2 apples, sliced
  • 2 pears, sliced
  • 2 oranges, sliced
  • a handful of cinnamon sticks
  • cinnamon sugar for the rim, if desired

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Add all of the fruit and cinnamon sticks to the bottom of a large pitcher. Add the hard cider, beer, apple cider, ginger ale and brandy together and stir gently. If you’d like, rim the edge of a glass with an orange wedge and dip in the cinnamon sugar.
  2. To serve, pour the sangria over extra fruit and ice. Unlike regular sangria, I don’t let this sit overnight since we’re using the beer and it’s carbonated and fizzy.
  3. Also, as note, taste your sangria before serving. The sweetness level will depend on the beer you use along with the cider! If you need a touch of sweet, I’d go with some maple syrup stirred in.
