VOGA Italia’s Spiced Sangria Cocktail Recipe

As we officially welcome fall this weekend, get in the mood for chilly weather by infusing the flavors of the season into your cocktail hour with seasonal sangria. Featuring fall’s most loved flavors including cinnamon, clove, figs, apples and of course, rich, red wine, below please find the recipe for VOGA Italia’s Spiced Sangria. For more information on Voga Italian Wine...please visit their web site!

VOGA Italia’s Spiced Sangria Recipe

3-4 fresh figs, sliced (or 1 cup dried figs)
1-2 fresh gala apples, sliced
2-3 clementines, sliced (not peeled)
1 lemon, sliced
2 bottles VOGA Italia Merlot
3 cups sparkling apple cider
1 cup orange juice
½ cup brandy
½ cup dark spiced rum
4 cinnamon sticks
5 whole cloves

Slice apples and insert whole cloves directly into the fruit. Combine all fruit slices in a glass pitcher and slowly pour in brandy and wine. Cover and chill from 2-24 hours (the longer, the better!) Before serving, add sparkling cider and orange juice. Stir gently and serve over ice. Makes about 15 servings.
