Hello, my loves! Lindsey here to bring you yet another fabulous sangria recipe – and if I do say so myself, this one is DELISH!

I started thinking about how to incorporate fresh figs and a bold whiskey base with a few of my favorite fall flavors like apple and cinnamon. Simple, but full of depth and flavor, this recipe is perfect for enjoying with friends and family for Thanksgiving, or you can just whip up a batch for an afternoon of football with the hubs.

1/2 pear, sliced

1 tsp vanilla extract

      For the 1/4 cup of Cognac, would Grand Marnier be a suitable substitute being that it’s cognac infused with orange? Or would the orange be too overpowering with the other flavors? Planning on making this for a holiday dinner party this weekend!

      • Hey Ben – great question! We think it would be a totally acceptable substitute, but if you are looking for an excuse to taste test before the big dinner, we support that fully 😉 Let us know how it goes!
