Apple Pie Sangria:

As you may have noticed, sangria is among my favorite libations to create. (You can find all of my recipes here.) The first time I remember having really good sangria was back when I lived in Philly.

Ever since then I’ve been hooked on the stuff and will come up with any excuse to make it. It’s the perfect beverage for a party since large quantities can be made in advance. Plus, it’s fancy without being fussy. That’s my kind of beverage.

In this post, I’m adding to my every growing list of sangria recipes with this Apple Pie Sangria!

During the fall, I love making sangria with fresh apple cider and spices. Drinking it is like a slice of heaven on earth.


How to Make Apple Pie Sangria:

I’m calling this Apple Pie Sangria because it includes all of the flavors we love in traditional apple pie (sans the crust). To bring in those classic apple pie spices, I make my own Apple Pie Spice Simple Syrup. It might sound complicated, but let me assure you, it’s not. It’s just your basic simple syrup recipe with spices added. That’s it.

I have a full post dedicated to my simple syrup recipes if you want to read more about them and how to use them. You can find that HERE.

Having the spices in the syrup allows them to easily incorporate into the cold beverage. Otherwise they would clump up or float to the top, and that would not be good.

To complete the delicious fall flavors in this sangria, I used a new salted caramel vodka that I picked up at the liquor store. It adds another layer of flavor to this cocktail that’s just perfect. You can certainly use regular caramel vodka if that’s what you have on hand.

Also, you noticed I used a lemon but the recipe calls for an orange. While a lemon certainly works, I recommend an orange. I just happened to have a lemon on hand when I prepared this.

And that’s it! A few special and unique touches make this a delightful sangria for fall. Whip this up on a Thursday night, and you’ll be set to enjoy it all weekend. You’re welcome. You can find the full details on this Apple Pie Sangria in the printable recipe card below.

Yep, it’s that simple. It looks pretty, too. You can use whatever glass you’d like, but I think it’s fitting to serve it up in copper mugs garnished with a cinnamon stick. It’s fall perfection.
