Fall, fall, fall. It's finally time for crisp weather, colored leaves, and fall cocktails. (yippee, right?) Now that we are finally not roasting here in the City of Angels, I've been switching up our evening cocktails to seasonally appropriate. Our current fav? Autumn Pear Sangria…..it's the perfect fall sangria….crisp, with just the right touch of cinnamon and spice. To create this delicious fall sangria recipe, I teamed up with Crios Wines. And man, was it a match made in heaven. Y'all know I love me a great wine….and Crios is my new fav! Crios is a family-owned brand by Susana Balbo, Argentina's leading and most innovative winemaker. Susana was created by Susana as a tribute to her son, Jose?, and daughter, Ana…..as a mom, I love that! Now, Susana’s children have joined the family business. Crios Wines are harvested from specific areas in Mendoza and Salta in Argentina, where grapes are optimal for the fruit-forward style of Crios (and perfect for inspiring delicious sangria recipes)! What wine did I use for this delicious pear sangria recipe? Crios Torrontes. This wine was created as Susana's way of “breaking the rules.” She used this common blending grape to create a delicious, crisp white wine. Torrontes' notes of white flower, peach and pear made it the perfect choice for a dry, crisp pear sangria. I love this dry, crisp wine….and it added the perfect flavor to this fall cocktail!
