Honeycrisp Apple Sangria

Are you familiar with the recipes on Sally’s Baking Addiction? Sally has the most incredible recipes, and this one knocks it out of the park! It’s perfect for a crisp fall game day.
3 Cinnamon sticks (plus more for garnish)
2 Honeycrisp apples, chopped
1 Orange, thinly sliced
1 (750 ml) bottle Red Wine (Sally suggests a light-bodied Spanish variety)
1 and 3/4 cups Apple Cider*
1/2 cup Brandy
1/4 cup Orange Juice (or juice from 2 medium oranges)
juice from 1 Lemon
Club Soda, to taste
1. Place the cinnamon sticks, apples, and orange slices in a large pitcher. Add wine, apple cider, brandy, orange juice, and lemon juice. Allow to sit in the refrigerator for 6 – 24 hours. Taste; if you’d like it to be sweeter, add 1-2 Tablespoons granulated sugar, honey, or agave.
2. If you’d like a cinnamon-sugar rim (highly recommended), simply moisten the rim of your glasses with water, turn the glass upside down and dip it into a mix of cinnamon and sugar. Pour in the sangria with fruit and add a splash of club soda (this unsweetened fizz is wonderful with the sangria!). Garnish with a cinnamon stick, if desired. Cheers!
Make ahead tip: Sangria is the perfect make-ahead cocktail since it must sit for at least 6 hours. You can also make it one day in advance.
Recipe Notes from Sally:
*1. Use a sweetened, unfiltered version of apple cider. It will be found in the refrigerator section of your grocery store.
2. Feel free to add ice to your glasses of sangria. Don’t add it directly to the pitcher – this waters the sangria down. Which, clearly, we don’t want.
