When the weather is cold and you really want a tasty beverage to warm you completely, this Mulled Cranberry Apple Cider Sangria is the drink for the job.
It is simple to prepare and great for sipping with friends and family.
I find adding additional mulling spice to the mix gives this drink just enough of an extra kick of warmth and comfort.
Mulled Cranberry Apple Cider Sangria
- 1 750 ml bottle semi-sweet to sweet wine you choose your favorite
- 2 quarts fresh apple cider
- 2 C cranberry juice
- 1/4 C packed brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp whole cloves

Begin in a large pot or slow cooker by heating the apple cider and cranberry juice to a near boil. Add the remaining ingredients minus the wine and steep for about 15 minutes.
Turn off the heat and add the wine. Stir to combine and serve garnished with cranberries, cinnamon sticks, and orange slices.
