Thanksgiving is just around the corner and that means spending time with family and friends and eating a lot of good food!

Every family has their own traditions regarding the Thanksgiving day menu, but if you are looking for a delicious and festive cocktail to share at your feast, I have just the recipe for you!

You may have seen a similar recipe circling around Pinterest the past few months much like I have. I decided to do a trial run with my best friend, Laura, and her husband, Ryan, to see if it would pass the taste test. And ya’ll, this is dangerously good!

I present to you…Caramel Apple Sangria!

It is a fairly simple drink to make but honestly, it appears and tastes like a lot more went into making it! We added a special touch by rimming the glass with brown sugar and it not only looked pretty, but it added more flavor to the sangria with each sip!

Below is the recipe we used, but if you are wanting a larger quantity I would simply double the ingredients:

Caramel Apple Sangria

750ml bottle of Pinot Grigio (or white wine of your choosing)
1 cup of Caramel Flavored Vodka
2 cups of Apple Cider
1-2 Apples
Brown Sugar (for rim decoration)

Pour all liquids into a large pitcher and stir. Cut apples into small pieces and add to the pitcher. To decorate the rim of your wine glasses: dip the top of the wine glass into a little apple cider and then place lip of the glass into a shallow plate of brown sugar to coat the rim.

Then pour your sangria and enjoy!

Try it and let me know what you think! Happy Thanksgiving!

TRENDING: The Blanket Scarf

One of the most popular, and coziest, trends of this fall and winter seasons, is the Blanket Scarf! They are soft, warm, and really add a special touch to casual and dressier outfits alike.

You will come to know that I adore scarves. I have over 30 hanging in my closet as we “speak!” Some are solid colors, some patterned, some infinity style, and of course, your standard, tried and true, pashminas.

The blanket scarf, however, is the figurative “new girl in town” in my closet, and I have welcomed her with open arms! I would say neck, but that would just be odd…

While this post focuses on a casual styling of the blanket scarf, I plan to add this to dresses as well. Imagine a midi length sweater dress, sassy booties, and a blanket scarf?! I’m already planning that outfit as I type this!

Its easy to see that the blanket scarf can be dressed up or down depending your preference. I can’t wait for cooler weather so I can add this to my outfits more often. If you are looking for this scarf in particular, you can find a similar one here, but they are literally EVERYWHERE right now! This is a perfect trendy accessory because there are many affordable options.

Find one that suits your personality and just go for it! Get your trend on!
