Blackberry Apple Spooky Sangria
Make this festive Blackberry Apple Spooky Sangria recipe with spirialized apples to really spook your guests! Or substitute juice to make it non-alcoholic for kids.
My name is Katrina and I’m addicted to kitchen gadgets.
I have egg separators, ice cream sandwich makers, melon ballers, cherry pitters, pickle forks, and enough spatulas to last me several lifetimes of use. Most tools I keep around because they don’t take up a lot of space and what would I DO if I needed those bamboo wooden tongs and they weren’t faithfully waiting for me?
But I also have things like shaved-ice machines, donut makers, and spirializers that DO take up a lot of space. They are shoved into every inch of the spaces that I have carved out for myself in our home. I was looking for a new use for my spirializer because I just cannot bear to part with it even though I only use it about once every 2 years. We’ve been through 3 moves together and I have faithfully packed it up and found a new space for it every time.
Don’t those long spirialized apple slices just creep you out?! I LOVE them! What a killer way to up your sangria-making game this Halloween! I also made some spooky black ice to keep things cool.
Just a few drops of McCormick black food coloring added to dark juice makes perfectly spooky black ice. For the kids I threw some black ice into plastic beakers along with some colorful sports drinks. I love the ombre effect! Of course you could substitute any dark grape or berry juice for the wine if you wanted to make the whole pitcher kid-friendly.
This Green Lagoon Punch recipe is another creepy alternative that my kids are requesting this month. LOVE it!
If you are serving this Blackberry Apply Spooky Sangria wine pitcher in mixed company with kiddos I would recommend you writing “Not Safe For Kids” on a piece of bright tape or paper and attaching to the pitcher (and of course keeping out of reach). Believe me- little ones will want to get their hands on this spooky drink.
