Holiday Recipe: Apple Wine Cups

Drink Food Recipes

Let’s face it, the holidays are here.

I’ve come to terms with the fact that it is impossible to prepare for their sudden arrival, so instead of stressing over it, I am just going to go with the flow and enjoy it. Starting with this fun holiday recipe I found on Corks + Cheers blog. Your holiday guests will be so impressed when you hand them a cold glass of wine in an Apple Wine Glass.

How to make your holiday Apple Wine Glasses.

Here’s what you need:

1 Large Apple per person
Ground Cinnamon
Cinnamon Sticks for garnish
Wine (I used Parker Estates Chardonnay)

Here’s how you do it:

  1. Cut the tops off the apples.
  2. Using a sharp knife, cut around the core. Be careful not to cut too deep or you may puncture a hole in the bottom and your wine will come dripping out. I know from experience. Don’t waste wine!!!
  3. Using a spoon, or melon baller, carefully dig out the insides.
  4. On a small plate, mix together cinnamon and sugar.
  5. Coat the rim of the apple with cinnamon and sugar.
  6. Enjoy!

Even if you aren’t serving wine at your holiday gathering, these would also work great with sparkling apple juice. Wishing everyone a happy holiday season!

I was sent a complimentary bottle of Parkers Estate Chardonnay and fall accessories to try, however, all opinions are my own.
