So now I have done it. I have decided to cook an entire Thanksgiving feast. Well when I made this decision I thought to myself it will only be for me and my sweet and it will be an experience. Well an experience it was. I mapped out my adventure. By mapped I mean that I decided the dishes I would make, made a shopping list, said a little prayer and I started sweating in the kitchen. After this adventure I have to give some serious applause to the women in my life (and supportive gentlemen) who have put on a successful Thanksgiving dinner. If I ever attempt a Thanksgiving dinner with more than just my sweet and the two drooling pups I know I will be more prepared with time table, charts, Venn diagrams and definitely this Apple Cider Sangria.
I have always been a huge fan of Sangria and I was immediately drawn to this type of Sangria because it was
not made with fruit. I have only every had every single version of fruit Sangria. Today is the day I try a new Sangria! I got out my apple corer and bought a bottle of cognac which was a first and started down a journey. This Sangria is dangerously delicious you will find because when you are finished it tastes just like chilled bubbly apple cider. Then after you are finished drinking said apple cider you will of course want to taste those apple slices and cognac soaked pomegranate seeds. This is a very tasty drink only if it is very chilled so make sure you have plenty of ice on hand! This is perfect to be served before your Thanksgiving feast when your guests are arriving and you are bringing out your appetizers or after dinner with you dessert as it is very sweet!
