Introducing the party punch of Spain, Portugal, Mexico and Argentina.
Serve up a homemade sangria that reflects the autumn season with pears, apples, oranges and a hint cinnamon. Be generous with the fruit it makes a difference. With that said, be generous with the Cointreau, or triple sec it makes a difference too.
A definite crowd pleaser!
3 clementines or other orange slices
2-3 cinnamon sticks
2 tablespoons honey or agave syrup
6-ounces triple sec or Cointreau
2 bottles of red wine
1. Core and cube all fruit and put into a pitcher or carafe
2. Add 2-3 cinnamon sticks and honey
3. Add cherries
4. Add liquor and wine, stir and let sit to allow the flavors to come together.
Sounds like a party to me! Happy Thanksgiving Week:@)

Love your sangria. Reminds me of a friend who always served sangria for his guests as a first cocktail to his Thanksgiving and Christmas parties.Sam
This sounds fantastic!!!
That's a really rich beautiful color.
I love sangria,Velva! Perfect for all the parties coming…..Salud and happy Thanksgiving!
Looks so beautiful and refreshing 🙂
That looks like a pitcher full of fun! I can do a lot of damage to some sangria:)Love how the fruit has soaked up all the red wine.
Oh, I just love sangria!! I think we should just put straws in the pitcher 😉
Love it! My favorite thing is to eat the fruit after the sangria is gone- This looks yummy. 🙂
I am sad to be pear-less
Fall and wine? Love it.

Yummy. I am going to make this for Christmas.
Bev is a huge fan of sangria and I'm sure she'll love this – we'll make up a batch when she gets back from Marco.
Sign me up, girl.
