The Cider Crate

Cocktail

Orchard Sangria

Ah, summer! The time of the year to go sit outside and enjoy a nice pleasant cold drink, with plenty of subtle flavours. Now, usually, I prefer sipping either sangria or a good semi-dry cider in my garden, so I figured, why not combine them both? With the nice tartness of the cider and the rich flavour of a good peach schnapps, with fresh stone fruit, this makes a perfect summer treat

Ingredients
1 473ml can of a semi-dry cider (cold)
1 oz of peach schnapps
1/2 peach or nectarine sliced, and pit removed.

Substitutions
You can sub peach brandy or liqueur if you are unable to get some

First put the fruit in the bottom of a collins or pint glass, and pour the peach schnapps over it. Let sit for 10-15 minutes, then top with the cider. Stir and enjoy
