My dear friend Aliya makes the best sangria. She brings it to all of our many, many social gatherings in the fall. And, there are quite a few from birthday parties to holiday parties. We can count on her bringing it, just as much as we can count on her being late. ha!
Thankfully, Aliya shared her awesome sangria recipe with me so I could share it here. So enjoy some Apple Cider Fall Sangria!
Apple Cider Fall Sangria
One of my favorite things in the fall is apple cider (and, of course, apple cider donuts!). I love the crisp, sweet flavor. IT’s wonderful cold or hot, and straight up or spiked. You’re doing yourself a big disservice if you don’t always have a bottle of apple cider in your fridge in the fall.
Obviously, this Apple Cider Fall Sangria has apple cider in it! duh! It’s what give it’s amazing fall flavors. All that fresh fruit too. Loads and loads of apples coming right at all.
I love the Lighthouse Apple Ciders in this sangria. Both their Honey Crisp Blend and their Gala Blend are great options. The Honey Crisp blend has a nice sweet but tart flavor, while the Gala Blend is a bit more mellow.
Besides the delicious apple cider, the sangria has vodka and a dry white wine. The vodka helps give it a punch, because why not!?!? You marinate the fruit in the vodka and apple cider so those pieces of fruit are tasty and boozy! YUM!!
Because the cider is naturally sweet, be sure to buy a dry white wine, so it’s not too sweet, but balanced in flavor and finish.
Enjoy a glass of Apple Cider Fall Sangria today! You’ll love crisp, and refreshing the sangria is. But careful, it sneaks up on ya!
Can I use a different vodka?
The recipe calls for whipped cream vodka (my friend suggests Smirnoff), but vanilla vodka is also enjoyable.
How long does the Apple Cider Fall Sangria Last?
Well, if you drink a lot of it, it will disappear pretty quickly! But, really, store in the refrigerator and keep for 3 days maximum.
