You’ve just been jarred out of your post-Thanksgiving stupor by a fresh new work week. I think it’s high time to start planning for a new weekend, don’t you?

I’ve got all sorts of yummy recipes — healthy and otherwise, but today I’ll assume your fridge is stocked with leftovers. So let’s skip the food and head straight for the drinks.

I’m a sucker for sangria and have mixed up all sorts over the years: white, red, fruity, dry — you get the idea.

Sangria has always felt like such a summery drink to me, though. As soon as the first chill hits the air, I switch to spiced cider and mulled wine mode.

But today’s apple cider sangria recipe is here to make the case for the fruity stuff as a winter sipper, too!

You can mix this up as a single cocktail to go with dinner, or batch it to serve at a party.

One of the best parts of this recipe is its versatility.

It’s delicious as a non-alcoholic mocktail. It’s equally good with the added kick of your favorite spiced rum, bourbon, or whiskey!
