- Just for the adults - It’s nice to have something just for us don’t you think? Although you can make a mocktail apple sangria by omitting the alcoholic elements.
- A fun party drink - Enjoy this cocktail any time of year. It could be the perfect Christmas sangria, served at your next fall gathering, or even a New Year cocktail.
- Large pitcher
- Cutting board
- Serving glasses or mason jars
apples-I used Granny Smith and Honeycrisp apples. I think the mix of green and red apples adds a pop of color and makes this apple cider cocktail visually appealing.
oranges- Orange flavor is typical in a classic fruit sangria and works well to give a citrus freshness to this fall recipe.
cinnamon sticks- these are a must! Whole cinnamon sticks will fuse with the rest of the ingredients and give incredible flavor.
apple pie spice- This is what you will use to create a sugar spice rim. You could use cinnamon instead to create a cinnamon sugar rim.
sugar- is just for the rim of the glasses. Many sangria recipes have added sugar but because the cider is sweet it really doesn't need extra.
apple cider- I love how the sweet apple cider adds some natural sweetness and plenty of apple flavor.
white wine- I used dry white wine. Pinot grigio, chardonnay, and sauvignon blanc all work well and just depends on your personal preference. Some recipes use red wine to make a red sangria which you could also try. Pinot noir would work well.
cinnamon whisky- I used Fireball to give this sangria the extra warmth and kick. Regular whiskey or even brandy will be great substitutes here.
club soda-This will add extra freshness and help balance out all of the flavors with a neutral tone. Plus I like the bubbles that the club soda adds.
Wash the fresh fruit well. Core and cut the apples into thin slices, leaving the peel on for color. Cut the oranges into thin slices. Reserve some fruit for the glasses.
Add the sliced fruit to a large pitcher along with the cinnamon sticks.
Add the whisky, apple cider, and white wine. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours.
Before serving add a cup of club soda for bubbles and stir well. The most important thing to remember is not to add the carbonation until the sangria has soaked in the refrigerator for the desired amount of time.
On a small plate, add the sugar and spices. Stir the mixture well. Wet the top of each glass (I used a slice of orange to run around the rim.) Turn the glass upside down and twist in the sugar-spice mixture.
Add fruit and ice to the glasses. Pour the sangria into the glasses and add a cinnamon stick for garnish. This is the perfect way to serve this white sangria. Serve immediately.
This delicious apple cider sangria should be made ahead because it needs to be refrigerated for at least 4 hours and can soak for up to 24 hours before serving it.
