Brandy Cider Sangria

It's Fall Ya'll! 
Thanksgiving is only 2 weeks away and the weather here in Austin has only teased us with a few random cool days. Mulled Cider, Hot Chocolate and Hot Toddies are going to have to wait until we aren't so hot ourselves. 
Just because Mother Nature isn't bothering to be agreeable doesn't mean that we can't have a festive drink while we gather to celebrate all that we are thankful for.
I, for one, am very thankful for this drink! 
Brandy Cider Sangria- full of cinnamon, brandy and ginger-y apple spice in a refreshing chilled cocktail.
It's sure to warm your heart and not your hands!
Brandy Cider Sangria
1 cup apple cider
1 bottle dry white wine
1/2 cup brandy
1/4 cup honey
1 granny smith apple, sliced
1 fuji apple, sliced
2 cinnamon sticks
1 inch piece of ginger, peeled

Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher and allow to chill overnight or at least 4 hours
