This recipe originally called for a ¼ cup Pisco. We made it without and loved it, but you can add it or substitute brandy. Sweetango Apples work wonderfully in this cocktail

Peel, core and chop one of the apples. In a bowl, combine the wine, schnapps and honey. Add the quartered orange, lemon, lime, cinnamon sticks, chopped apple, ginger, and cloves. Refrigerate at least 4 hours.Strain the Sangria into a pitcher. Peel, core and finely chop the remaining apple. Peel, section and chop the remaining orange. Combine the apple and orange in bowl.On a small plate, blend sugar and cinnamon. Moisten the rims of wine glasses and dip in cinnamon/sugar to coat. Fill glasses with ice. Pour Sangria until three-quarters full. Top with a splash of club soda. Garnish with a spoonful of chopped apple and orange.
