Cinnamon Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 5 whole cinnamon sticks


  • 1 bottle Grenache
  • 1 1/2 cups spiced apple cider
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons apple brandy
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons pear brandy
  • 1/4 cup cinnamon simple syrup
  • 2 soaked cinnamon sticks (from cinnamon simple syrup)
  • 1 small Gala or Fuji apple cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 Granny Smith apple cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 small red pear cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 small green pear cored and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 small pomegranate seeded
  • 1/2 orange halved, thinly sliced and each sliced
  • ice to serve (optional)


Make Cinnamon Syrup:

  • In a small saucepan add the sugar and water. Turn heat to high, bring to a boil, and cook for about 3 minutes or until sugar dissolves completely. Place syrup in a container and add cinnamon sticks and cover tightly. Chill syrup in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours up to 48 hours. The cinnamon flavor will get stronger the longer it sits. Remove the cinnamon sticks and set aside to use in the sangria.

Make Sangria:

  • In a pitcher, add wine, spiced apple cider, both brandys, 1/4 cup cinnamon simple syrup, reserved cinnamon sticks from syrup, and all the fruit. Cover top of pitcher tightly with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 4 to 72 hours. Serve in individual glasses over ice.
