Blended with white wine, apples, pears, and cinnamon this Apple Cider Sangria makes the perfect fall cocktail.
It’s no secret that sangria is one of my go-to cocktails. I’ve created a variety of sangria recipes here on Inspired by Charm (You can find all of them here.). However, this Apple Cider Sangria I whipped up especially for fall has moved to the top with my favorites.
How to Make a Fall Apple Cider Sangria:
Coincidentally, I was at the liquor store last week and discovered a bottle of Apple Pie Vodka. I picked it up, thinking I could find a use for it down the road. It added an extra-special touch to this sangria. So after a little recipe research and testing, I came up with a delicious Apple Cider Sangria!
To really bring out the fall flavors and make this drink look special I added in apples, pears, grapes, and seasonal spices. This recipe makes a pretty big batch, but you can easily adjust the recipe for smaller gatherings.
However, if you can’t find apple pie vodka specifically, and apple flavored vodka will work just as nicely.
It’s an exquisite blend of crisp apple, spice, and everything nice! Okay, let me show you how to put this together.

Sounds pretty delicious, right? Trust me. It is! And it’s just the thing for your fall celebrations. I also love snacking on the fruit after it has had a chance to soak up all of that fall flavor. This is the kind of healthy snacking I could get used to! Haha.
