It's officially fall. Autumn means boots and sweaters, colorful leaves and crisp cool days. It's my favorite season. While we don't get much fall weather here in Arizona (I'm usually sipping some Prickly Pear Margaritas), it's still my favorite. I still like to pretend it's fall and I've created a yummy apple-pie sangria that's perfect for autumn.

I've been shopping at HomeGoods for some new fall decor, like my new favorite "it's fall y'all" throw pillow to spruce up my living room. The cactus around these parts don't change colors in the Fall, but with my new decor and my apple-pie sangria, it's starting to feel like it is really fall.

Infused with the flavors of apples, pears, cinnamon and cloves, this sangria is delicious and potent! A few sips of this apple-pie sangria, and you'll be feeling warm and cozy in no time.

Optional Fancy Topping

My husband enjoyed it plain, but I tried it in a glass rimmed with cinnamon sugar and it was even better. Just mix 2-parts sugar with 1-part cinnamon and a dash of ground cloves.

The thing about sangria is that it's easy and yummy and makes a pretty presentation. It really started to feel like fall in my house with my pretty glass pumpkin from HomeGoods and a big glass of my apple-pie sangria. I can't wait to serve this autumn sangria to family and friends at Thanksgiving.
