New Year. New Cocktails. 5 Cocktail Recipes To Try In 2017

I’m a firm believer of trying new things, especially when it comes to cocktails.  I think it’s great that some of my friends have a “house” wine or drink.  Something that they in essence, always have on tap at their house and friends get to know.  However with a new year starting, I also think it’s good to mix things up a bit!  Expand your cocktail horizon.  These 5 cocktail recipes only deviate slightly from the norm, adding a new twist to the same old drink recipes we all know.

Fall Sangria Recipe

I love sangria!  Sangria is usually thought of as a Summer cocktail but there’s so many ways to change it up for Fall.  By swapping out some of the typical sangria fruits like melon and grapes with more in-season ones like cranberries and apples, you can really change up any sangria recipe.  Take a look at this sangria recipe and you’ll be ready to go pumpkin picking in no time!

Fall Sangria Recipe

Ingredients:

2 apples, cored and sliced
3/4 cup cranberries
2 pears, sliced
1 750mL bottle hard cider
1/2 cup bourbon
2 Tbsp Calvados or other apple brandy
1 cup ginger beer

Directions:  Add to a large pitcher all the prepared fruit. Pour in the bourbon, calvados and ginger beer and stir. Slowly add the bottle of hard cider. Set in the fridge for 2 hours and serve. (If you’d prefer to preserve more carbonation, serve immediately or hold off on adding the hard cider until serving.)

 

I altered the recipe I found at Cheese and Chocolate
