Great to serve at Thanksgiving. Notes from the chef: Cave or Prosecco is great for the bubbly. The VS cognac compliments the apples with its notes of caramel and vanilla, and it makes your cider into a cocktail suited for the adults at your gathering. This sangria skips the sugar because the apple cider is sweet enough. Slice the apples into matchsticks rather than the cubes for a more traditional rustic sangria, and then I added some pomegranate seeds for a stunning presentation and a nice touch of tartness. The recipe looks sophisticated but it's simple, and that's something we can all be grateful for with the endless to do list during the holidays. Source: http://www.thekitchn.com/
