It’s Thirsty Thursday Y’all!
Drink Recipe: Honeycrisp Apple Sangria
We’re finally starting to accept that fall is around the corner. This drink recipe will be our first to try! It’s a great combo of summer and fall - it’s sangria but it’s made with apples and cinnamon!
2 honeycrisp apples
One 750-milliliter bottle un-oaked Chardonnay
1/2 cup peach schnapps
1/4 cup orange blossom honey
2 oranges- 1 quartered
1 lemon - quartered
1 lime - quartered
2 cinnamon sticks
2 quarter-size slices of fresh ginger
3 whole cloves
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Peel, core and chop one of the apples. In a bowl, combine the Chardonnay, schnapps and honey. Add the quartered orange, lemon, lime, cinnamon sticks, chopped apple, ginger and cloves and refrigerate overnight. (If you don’t want to wait that long at least give it 4 hours)
Strain the sangria into a pitcher. Peel, core and finely chop the remaining apple. Peel, section and chop the remaining orange. Mix the apple and orange in a bowl.
On a small plate, blend the sugar and cinnamon. Moisten the rims of wine glasses and dip in the cinnamon sugar to coat. Fill the glasses with ice. Pour in the sangria until three-quarters full. Top with a splash of club soda. Garnish with a spoonful of the chopped apple and orange.

Is it time for dessert yet? Blueberry-Drop Biscuit Cobbler (Bon Appétit, August 2012)
I need to start making some cobbler. It is like gloriously messy pie.
I need to make these in honor of my awesome great-grandmother (her favorite candy was Rolos).
I made those Cheesecake-stuffed Strawberries.
Oh dear Odin those look good.
This recipe is for Dulce de Leche (or Confiture de Lait in French) from whole milk. I CAN NOT wait to try this. I may have to try Dulce de Leche from condensed milk first to have a comparison though.
These are one of my favorite things to make.
