Halloween Sangria Ingredients:
1 cup whole black grapes
1 cup whole green grapes
2 oranges sliced into rounds
1 lemon sliced into rounds
1 lime sliced into rounds
1 cinnamon stick
1/4 cup brandy
1 bottle Skies Over Texas 2019 Dolcetto, Rip Roaring or Home Town
1 can ginger ale (12 ounces)
Colored sugar for rimming glasses
- Rinse and de-stem grapes, then pat dry. Spread in a single layer a baking sheet, then place in the freezer at least 2 hours before you plan to serve.
- In a large glass pitcher, combine 1/2 of the orange slices (reserve the second half for serving), lime, and lemon slices. Add the brandy and cinnamon stick and stir gently to combine. Slowly pour in the Skies Over Texas wine.
- Refrigerate sangria for at least 2 hours or as long as overnight (a longer chill time will increase the flavor).
- When ready to serve, add the ginger ale to the pitcher and stir gently with a spoon. To rim the glasses, place the colored sugar on a plate, then rub an orange slice around the glass rim. Dip the rim of each glass into the sugar, coating well. Fill glasses with frozen grapes and reserved orange slices, then slowly pour in the sangria. Sip immediately and enjoy.
For best results, chill for at least 2 hours or as long as overnight. A longer chill time will result in a more robust, flavorful Halloween punch!
