  • Per Serving:

  • 1/2 ounce apricot brandy
  • 1 tsp organic sugar
  • Oranges sectioned
  • Pomegranate seeds
  • Apple sliced thinly
  • Grapes halved
  • Persimmon sliced


  • Combine fruit, sugar and brandy and let sit at room temperature until sugar dissolves, about 15 minutes.
  • Add cider, cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight.
  • Serve chilled.


I've written this recipe as a single serving to make it easier to multiply for a pitcher or punch quantity. Ever noticed how cider comes in a wide variety of container sizes? As a guide, if you wanted 12 servings you would want about one cup of each fruit...but it's not a fussy recipe which is why sangria is awesome! Use the amounts you have on hand and let it soak so the flavors develop.
