Summer is over. That’s a bummer for a lot of us, especially the teachers out there who have to resume real life after their 3 month breaks. However, as my teacher friend will tell you, the best way to cope with that is acknowledging the return of the NFL. And, the return of football requires a different kind of drink. This is not going to be your typical, make-one-at-a-time cocktail. We’re not talking glasses or mugs, we’re talking pitchers. We’re talking: Sunday Sangria.
Honestly, if you prefer, you can also call this Sunday Cider. Both are phonetic alliterations, so dealer’s choice. Either way, this is a solid drink to entertain with and enjoy while cheering on your favorite team, or watching your fantasy team disappoint you for the 3rd consecutive week. Let’s get into it.
- 1 bottle of white wine (I’d go with Sauvignon Blanc but you can choose what you’d like)
- 12 oz Hard apple cider
- 32 oz apple cider or apple juice
- 8 oz ginger ale
- apple slices
- Put ingredients in pitcher.
- Pour into mason jars (or whatever you want mason jars are just cool)
This will go down fast as it is sweet and delicious, so it might be good to buy double those ingredients so you can have another batch for the 4 o’clock games…or for the second half of the 1 o’clocks.
Drink responsibly. Don’t let your team losing encourage you to go overboard (looking at you Giants fans).
