Autumn Harvest Fall Sangria

Sangria is simple to make, yet it looks super special. It’s likewise something that most people enjoy. I also find it helpful that you can mix up a large batch if you’re expecting a lot of guests.

This Autumn Harvest Fall Sangria incorporates fresh apples and pears and was inspired by my visit to an orchard. A cinnamon simple syrup gives it spice for the season.

Another wonderful thing about sangria is that you can whip it up the day before your event. It just gets better as the flavors meld together.

    you don’t have brandy in the ingredient list so I didn’t buy it – but you have it in the instructions?

    This was such a hit last year for Friendsgiving. Can’t wait to try it again this year….even if it’s just my family. Stupid Covid!

  • Tiffeny J at

    This is the BEST sangria we have had! I have a regular recipe I make but the whole family said this is the only one we are allowed to have from now on, no matter the season!! LOL Definitely do not skip the cinnamon simple syrup! It is the key to taking this to the next level. Sooooo good Thank you for sharing 🙂

  • Erin at

    So good! Making it for the second time in two weeks.

    Is the apple cider sparkling or juice?

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      It’s just real apple cider. Not apple juice, not sparkling apple.

        One more question – what size bottle of wine? Thanks ✌️💕✨

      • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

        Just standard wine bottle size – I believe that’s 750mL

    I’ve made this Sangria twice for this fall, and everyone loves it! I too added a splash of club soda, just plain fabulous!!

  • Rolanda at

    This was the best sangria ever! I almost omitted the cinn. simple syrup, and boy am I glad I didnt, that is what put it over the top as The Best!! I also added a splash of club soda! Great Recipe to enjoy around a fire on a brisk Fall night.

    How long do you think this would keep? More than 24 hrs?

    This is currently sitting in the fridge, ready to be brought to my husband’s family gathering (where they NEVER serve anything alcoholic but were open to us bringing sangria 🙂 🙂 ). Used 1/4 cup apple whiskey instead of brandy and added whole cranberries instead of pomegranate seeds, but otherwise stayed on course with the recipe. The cinnamon syrup makes it absolutely DIVINE (at least from what I can tell from various test tastes :). Thanks for the recipe, hope it goes over well!

      So excited! I’m sure everyone will enjoy it! Cheers!
