Pumpkin Spice Sangria is Fall in a Cup

I have never been one to hop onto fads like Pumpkin Spice Lattes, even if Amanda made us stop in Dublin at the first Starbucks she saw that had one.

But this pumpkin spice drink, my friends, is absolutely wonderful!

The Pumpkin Spice Sangria is like the beautiful fall leaves, pumpkin patches, and an apple pie jumped into your cup!

With alcohol!

People were demanding the recipe when I debuted the drink last week at our first “fall” tailgate (you know, when the weather was cool enough you didn’t need the AC running at night). Even the guys who would never ever admit to liking anything pumpkin spice were loving it!

It’s like giving away a secret family recipe.

Really, I’m not sure I should even share this recipe with you.

It was so popular and tasty, I forgot to take pictures of the first batch until it was almost gone! But it was so popular, my fellow tailgaters demanded another batch for the next week.

At least with the second batch, I remembered to take some pictures with more than just the fruit. Even if the fruit was tasty, having soaked in the wine for 24 hours!

This is the only picture from the first batch!

Fruit means it is healthy, right?

Note: it is common for the ingredients to settle out. Make sure you stir well to mix the pumpkin pie filling back into the drink before your serve.

Yes, I said pie filling. Just trust me on this, ok? Don’t worry, you won’t be eating the drink – except for the apples, of course!

You should also try these Pumpkin Swirl Brownies for another fall dessert. Plus you’ll need to use the rest of that pie filling and this recipe is perfect for that!

So without further ado…
