Sparkling Apple Pear Sangria is light, crisp, bubbly and sweet.  This is the perfect drink to sip while enjoying a nice cool, crisp fall day with your friends.  Wrap yourself in your favorite warm sweater, set up a table of your favorite fall appetizers and pour yourself a glass of this Sparkling Apple Pear Sangria. 

Is it cold where you live yet? Has fall weather set in?

Summer and fall rival each other as my favorite seasons.  I am lucky to live in a place that has four seasons {sometimes in winter I hate those four seasons!}.  Growing up in Michigan, fall was hands down my favorite season.  In Michigan we always went apple picking, played outside in the crisp fall leaves and visited a local pumpkin patch to pick out our Halloween pumpkins.  Every time fall rolls around, a really happy feeling sets over me.

I adore big, cozy sweaters. And a glass of really sweet, crisp apple cider. Oh, and how about a warm cup of pumpkin spice coffee?  Or, an apple cider donut?  Are you with me yet? Do you love fall as much as I do?

Well here is another reason.  Sparkling Apple Pear Sangria. Bubbly, sweet, light and the perfect party drink for your fall festivities.  This sangria uses Andre Champagne, fresh fruit, and apple cider to create a festive cocktail for your next party or get together.

It is time to put on a cozy sweater, whip up your favorite fall appetizers, invite over a bunch of your friends and sip on this Sparkling Apple Pear Sangria.  Nothing says fall like apple cider mixed with a little bubbles, right? In my opinion there is no better way to welcome in a new season then with a glass of fruity, sangria, especially using ingredients that are seasonal.

This Sparkling Apple Pear Sangria pairs together crisp fall apples, juicy pears, apple cider, soup apple pucker and a bottle of bubbly André Spumante.  I first fell in love with sangria when I spent a summer in Barcelona, Spain.  Most of the sangria I had while there was red but I did sip on a few glasses of white sangria.  I love how light, crisp and refreshing they are.

In Barcelona they have a street called Las Ramblas that is lined with restaurants, shops and in the center are little tables that you can sit and people watch, while drinking sangria and eating tapas. One of my favorite things to do was sit at one of those little tables with a plate of patatas braves and sip on a glass of sangria.  Whenever I make sangria at home I am always reminded of my love for Spain, their food and vibrant culture.

Sparkling Apple Pear Sangria is not only a drink but a snack. Yup, dual purposes. You heard me right! While you are sipping the sangria I highly suggest you provide your guests with a spoon in case they want to snack on the fruit.  That fruit gets soaked in the sweet juices and bubbles making it a party favorite.

When you make this sangria you can use whatever fruit you like. I find that pears and apples hold up really well in sangria and don’t get too mushy.  You can use any variety of apples and pears. Sometimes I use Granny Smith for a little extra pucker, or Red Anjou Pears to add that beautiful red color. Get creative and mix things up, that is what keeps like interesting, right?
