Blood Orange Apple Cider Sangria

Dry ice makes any drink during Halloween look ghostly and ghastly. But we especially love it with the Blood Orange Apple Cider Sangria, because that dark red color is just bringing that creepy feeling.

The key to any sangria is to start off with a good base wine and decide on which kind of spirit you’ll be adding (typically a type of brandy). For our recipe, we opted for a simple Cabernet Sauvignon and bucked tradition with Grand Marnier as the additional spirit. The Grand Marnier compliments the citrus notes in the recipe well.

Sangria is the easiest of punch cocktails to make. It involves combining all your ingredients together, then letting it rest until all the flavors combine well. Serve chilled and enjoy!

This Apple Cider Sangria all the best winter flavors. Citrus, spice, and apples.

And don’t forget to drink your sangria with the Endurance┬« Drink Straws! Even when it comes to parties, we love keeping reusable straws on hand.

Please drink responsibly and use dry ice with gloves or wooden tongs, because dry ice will get ya.
