Pumpkin spice gets all the attention, but apple cinnamon is equally amazing. So when a party pops up sometime between now and December, make sure you have a pitcher of this Apple Pie Sangria ready to go. It’s sweet (but not too sweet), bubbly, and perfectly spiced.
Bonus: Only 137 calories per cup! That beats the pants off those too-sugary appletinis.
