  • 1 bottle dry white wine 750 mL
  • 2 cups nonalcoholic apple cider or unsweetened apple juice* 473 mL
  • ¼ cup apricot, apple, or pear brandy 59 mL
  • 1 apple julienne cut
  • ½ cup pomegranate seeds
  • 2 large cinnamon sticks + more for serving
  • Honey or sugar as needed
  • A few handfuls of ice
  • 1 cup carbonated water 236 mL, club soda
  • Optional: cinnamon and sugar for serving


  • In a large pitcher, combine wine, cider/juice, brandy, apples, pomegranate seeds, and cinnamon sticks. Taste and add a few tablespoons of honey or sugar if needed. If you have time, set it in fridge for 3 hours or more for flavors to blend (but it's also tasty freshly made!)
  • Just before serving, add ice and pour into serving glasses. Top each glass with a splash of carbonated water and garnish with a cinnamon stick. For added fancy, combine a spoonful each of cinnamon and sugar. Dip the rim of your serving glasses into the sangria, then dip it in the cinnamon sugar mix before pouring in the sangria.


*If you're using apple juice, you may need to add a small squeeze of lemon juice to account for the missing tartness. Taste it and you be the judge!
