Maybe it's the hint of cinnamon that permeates this delicious drink. Or maybe it's the herbal notes from the fresh leafy rosemary sprig that's used as a garnish. Or maybe it's the combination of sweet pear, apples, and oranges. Whatever it may be, we think you'll agree that there's something special about this pear and apple fall sangria.
White wine (750 ml bottle)
Pear liqueur (1 or 2 shots to taste)
Hard apple cider (1 can)
Fresh rosemary (optional)
So how do they get the pear in the brandy bottle anyway? The pear isn’t put into the bottle; it grows inside it. When the fruit is small, the bottle is affixed to the tree branch, and the pear grows to maturity inside the bottle. It's a tried and true French technique. Can't find pear brandy? No worries! Any brandy will do.
Gather a large pitcher plus ingredients.
Chop fruit and transfer to the pitcher.
Add the alcohol and cinnamon sticks.
Give it a good stir.
Refrigerate for approximately one hour to chill.
Fill glasses with ice and use a large wooden spoon to scoop fruit from the pitcher. Fill glasses with the sangria.
Garnish with a sprig of fresh rosemary, if desired.
Which white works best? Pinot Grigio works well for this white sangria, but any white wine will do.
