Add an autumnal twist to a traditionally summery beverage with apples, pears, pomegranate and a cinnamon simple syrup.
Cinnamon Simple Syrup (makes 2 cups)
Combine the wine, apple cider, apple brandy, pear brandy, Cinnamon Simple Syrup and fruits in a large container with a lid and refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to 72 hours. Transfer to a pitcher before serving. Serve in red wine goblets over ice, if using.
Combine the sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan, bring to a boil over high heat and cook until the sugar is completely dissolved, about 3 minutes. Transfer the syrup to a container with a lid, add the cinnamon sticks and let chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours and up to 48 hours. The longer it sits, the more intense the flavor. Remove the cinnamon sticks and save to add to the sangria mixture.
