Fall Harvest Sangria

I absolutely LOVE autumn… growing up in Maryland, it has always been my favorite time of year!  Sadly, the magic of fall tends to be lost, between decorating for Halloween and going right into Christmas prep.  Living in Southwest Florida, it can be even more difficult to embrace all things fall.  We don’t experience the change in leaves or feel the crisp night air that your normally associate with fall.

I try, whenever possible, to ensure we stop and take the time to enjoy the subtle changes.  Arlene from Flour on My Face has rounded up a list of great fall activities in the area that definitely help fill my need for all things fall!

From scents to tastes to colors, I bring the classic hints of fall into our home wherever possible.  Our candles are changed, fall décor replaces the bright colors of summer.  Even more exciting, my baking takes a delicious turn as I embrace all things apple and pumpkin!

Fall Harvest Sangria combines apples, pears, cinnamon and cloves with dry white wine, apple cider and a little bit of brandy, for a delicious, boozy drink.

Fun Fall Fact: 

Not everyone has seasons at the same time! The equinox happens twice a year, and depending on which side of the planet you live, autumn will start in March (for south) or September (for north).  If you live in a place too close to the Equator, or central area of the planet, then you’ll never have autumn… or any season!
