This made-for-Halloween sangria is elegant and eerie all in one sip. Sparkling apple cider, dry white wine, and pear-flavored brandy are combined in one big punch bowl. Go bobbing for the pink lady apples and green grapes that float in the boozy beverage.

  • 1 bunch (about 8 ounces) green seedless grapes

  • 1 bunch (about 8 ounces) red seedless grapes

  • 2 bottles dry white wine, chilled

  • 2 cups sparkling apple cider, chilled

  • 6 tablespoons poire William (pear-flavored eau-de-vie)
