Autumn Apple Cider Sangria


It’s fall y’all!

And what better way to celebrate than by making an incredibly autumn-esque drink after getting a new tattoo!

That’s right, minions.

Today I got inked.

I’ve been wanting to get a tattoo that represents my marriage for some time now. In fact, I’ve been wanting to get a tattoo that represented our relationship since I finally realized that he was the one. I know that I’ve mentioned before that I wasn’t the nicest teenager, and I feel as if my husband had a lot to do with reigning me in. Oh, I also adore Harry Potter, so this tattoo just seemed like the perfect thing to get.

On October 29, 2011 my “Mischief” was “Managed” when I married the man who helped reign me in.

What do you think?!?

I *ADORE* it.

So, these drinks.


They are deliriously delicious, and I got the original idea when I saw this amazingness known as a Honeycrisp apple sangria on Pinterest.  Seriously?!? Nothing short of impressive. Nutmeg Nanny knows what’s up!

So, I put my bartending skills to good use and ended up with this.

Bubbly, crisp, cold, and refreshing, this cider sangria will literally make you swoon.

Like, you’ll immediately catch fall fever after

Don’t believe me?

Go ahead…try to prove me wrong ;)

Getting to know you…
