Hard Cider Sangria has quite the ring to it; especially when you add apple and blackberry to that mix. This is a cooled down version of our favorite cider cocktail perfect for fall sipping. Crafted by Kate Ramos of Hola Jalapeno, it's as pretty as it is yummy (both excellent qualities in a cocktail) and adds an autumnal punch to your menu. For more cocktail inspiration click here.
From Kate Ramos of Hola Jalapeno... This baby is loaded with apples—hard apple cider, sparkling apple soda, sliced fresh apples, and oh yeah, enough calvados to get the job done. Plus juicy blackberries and lemon slices for balance.
