Cinnamon Mulled Sangria | Robyns.World

The weather is turning chilly but the outdoors are still bright, crisp and full of fabulous colors so you sit back outside, wrapped cozily in your favorite fall sweater, and enjoy a nice warm mug of Cinnamon Mulled Sangria with friends.

How nice is that scene? Well, you can do it! This recipe for Cinnamon Mulled Sangria is a perfect blend of hot apple cider and fruity sangria wine. Plus it is far better than any pumpkin spiced drink I think.

  • 1 bottle Eppa Sangria

Once you have your drinks ready to go be sure to invite some friends over to share in it with you. Just because summer is over does not mean you cannot enjoy your outdoor areas for entertaining.  Here are a few tips to make the most of your fall festivities:

  • There’s no need to say farewell to the outdoors just yet. Make the focal point of your party a cozy outdoor setting, such as a patio with heaters or a fire pit. Add some warm blankets and comfy pillows, and you’ll hardly notice the lower temps.
  • Remember days get shorter as they grow colder, so a fall get-together may require special lighting to keep things going after the sun goes down. Fall-inspired string lights, lanterns or candles can add the perfect ambiance for a party that lasts well into the late-night hours. You can find great, affordable options online.
  • While it may seem like time to swap the tiki drinks and frozen cocktails for hot toddies and spiked ciders, fall doesn’t mean you must say goodbye to warm-weather favorites. Put an autumn twist on go-to drinks by adding in fall spices. This easy mulled sangria recipe is perfect for sharing with friends at outdoor celebrations.
