fall sangria

it's friday, so, let's celebrate with seasonal sangria. mmm. this one is pretty easy, minus having to wait a couple days before enjoying, let's quit wasting time and get to it!

here's what you'll need:
1-2 bottles of either cab or shiraz (depending on how big of a pitcher you're using)
1/2 cup of peach brandy
1 cup of club soda
1 orange, halved and quartered
1 honeycrisp apple, thinly sliced
1 granny smith apple, thinly sliced
1 pomegranate, halved and de-seeded
1 pitcher
1 muddler
2 bowls
1. first, place your sliced apples (see below photo) in the pitcher.
2. then, squeeze the juice from your oranges into the pitcher before dropping them in.

directions, continued
3. once your pomegranate seeds have been removed, split them between the two bowls. (see below photo).
4. make sure your pups are on standby to snack on any seeds that happen to fall on the floor.
5. in the first bowl, muddle the seeds lightly. the idea is not the crush the seeds but, to release the awesome pom juice.
6. place both bowls of seeds into the pitcher.
7. now, add your soda, brandy and red wine. lightly swirl the concoction around and then place in the fridge. ideally, it is best when left to mix for 2 days but, if you are feeling antsy, at least wait overnight.
8. enjoy!
