Tomorrow is Halloween and I am sharing, yet another apple recipe.  And I have two more apple recipes to share soon and not a one Halloween post.

Plenty of seasonal fall recipes going on here at Honey and Birch.  But no Halloween posts. Ever. And that isn’t changing this year.

I have a single Halloween tradition – I watch Hocus Pocus, at least twice and I watch either The Craft or Practical Magic.

Last year it was the HP/Craft combo and this year it’s HP/Practical Magic. (It appears that I equate Halloween with witches.)

And everything else I do depends on what I agree to first.

Some years I do the costume parties, sometimes I stay home and pass out candy.  This year, I am teaming up with my upstairs neighbor and we are going to pass out candy on the porch, with a pitcher of this white wine apple cider sangria next to us.

 White Wine Apple Cider Sangria

I first got the idea for this recipe when I went to Chicago Gourmet. I went to a wine mixology class and they mixed red wine and cider – it was delicious!

I grabbed a bottle of cheap, sweet white wine that I had laying around and some honeycrisp apples. I like that type of apple for sangria because it is true to its name and stays crisp.

Add in a healthy spattering of grapes and substitute soda water with cider and you have a cocktail perfect for passing out Halloween candy. Or an autumn brunch. 🙂

I picked up some hard cider at the grocery store but you can use any cider you want really – I think we have used Angry Orchard hard cider every time.
