Hey, friends! Fall is in full swing over here and we’re still as excited as we were last week when we shared our Spiked Cider! This week, though, it’s all about our red wine lovers. There’s something about a full-bodied red wine that screams fall, right!? That’s why we’re excited to bring you our Sauv Sangria featuring our Chalkboard Cabernet Sauvignon.
Here’s what you’ll need:
-1 bottle Chalkboard Cabernet Sauvignon
-1 12 oz bottle Ale 8
-1 Orange (we used blood orange)
And here’s how you make it:
In a pitcher, add orange and lemon slices. Pour Cabernet until about 3/4 of the way full. Top with Ale 8. Refrigerate over night. (A few hours will work, too, but giving it a full night to really infuse those fruit flavors is best for taste!). Serve chilled.
This sangria is the PERFECT blend for the red-wine lover as well as the trying-to-become-a -red-wine-lover. The fruit helps with some of the normal dryness of the Cab, while still being subltle enough to not take away from the bold flavors the cabernet has to offer. This one is so easy to double or triple batch, too, to serve at a fall party or even on Halloween! YES PLEASE!
As always, you can check out our instagram @corksandcheers for the video on how to make it!
