Caramel Apple Sangria

I do love a good sangria - with or without the fruit garnish.  And I do love sangria with my playgroup moms.  Yes, we are mothers who will have a drink while our kids play.  Turns out, we can tolerate a lot more rowdy play and mess when there's a cocktail involved.

I had the pleasure to sample this little gem with a few gal pals.  Wanna know how to make it?

1-750 ml bottle chilled, white wine, I recommend a pino grigio or something else that mild and dry
1 cup caramel vodka
6 cups apple cider
1-2 apples, cut into small pieces

You can make this one of two ways - the boozey way, or the super boozey way.

Boozey way:  simply mix everything together in a pitcher and serve, over ice especially if you wine isn't that cold.

Super boozey way:  soak apples in vodka for 1-2 hours before mixing it all together.  This is an especially good plan if you didn't have any other snacks for your cocktail.  Eating the caramelly apples will only make those children's whoopings from the other room during to soft crickets.

Pour into a glass and enjoy.  And make sure, if your darling friend is going to be a hand model for the drink, she's wearing a GORGEOUS ring.  Look Cheska, you're famous!!
