Tasty Tuesday: Apple Cider Sangria + Weekly Menu.

Before we get started with this yummy drink recipe, just wanted to let y'all know that I've updated my recipes tab above! Check it out for an easy way to find all of the recipes that have been featured on Tasty Tuesday!
Now on to the booze...
One of my favorite drinks during the Fall/Winter is apple cider. Pair it with a delicious summer sangria and you've got the best of both seasons!
