Apple Cider Sangria

Sangria is not just for summer, my friends! This Apple Cider Sangria is a fabulous drink to enjoy all throughout fall. It’s a beautiful balance of apple, orange and cinnamon with red wine. Add this cocktail to your menu for Thanksgiving, football watching or just sipping on by the fireplace with your family and friends.

I love that you can make this drink in advance so it’s ready to serve when the gathering gets started. The longer it sits in the fridge, the more flavorful it is.

The combination of apple cider, orange liqueur, orange juice and red wine is so refreshing. Each sip is a satisfying sip of fall comfort. Pour yourself a glass and enjoy! Cheers, my friends!

I recently shared this amazing Apple Cider Sangria recipe in the Fall Edition of IBB Home Magazine along with an amazing Kale and Brussels Salad with a Maple Dijon Vinaigrette, a flavorful dish of Sweet Potato Ricotta Gnocchi covered in a garlic brown butter herb sauce and topped with fresh lemon ricotta, and Pecan Pie Thumbprint Cookies for an easy way to get your pecan pie fix without baking an entire pie. The perfect menu for a fabulous fall gathering!

This Apple Cider Sangria is the perfect make-ahead cocktail to serve at a  fall gathering. It’s easy, festive and absolutely delicious!


Sangria Ingredients:

  • 1 large Honeycrisp apple, thinly sliced
  • 1 large orange, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • ½ cup orange liqueur (triple sec or Cointreau)
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 1 (750 ml) bottle red wine (pinot noir)

Garnishing Ingredients (optional):

  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Cinnamon sticks


  1. Place the sliced apple and orange in the bottom of a large pitcher. Add the apple cider, orange liqueur, orange juice and bottle of red wine. Gently stir it all together and let it set in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving. The longer it sits, the stronger the flavor of the drink. Before serving, add ice to fill the pitcher.
  2. To serve with a cinnamon sugar rim around the top of each glass, start by whisking together 1 tablespoon granulated sugar with 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon in a shallow bowl. Rub a slice of orange around the rim of each glass. Dip the rim into the bowl of cinnamon sugar and twist to ensure even coverage.
  3. Fill each glass with ice and then pour the Apple Cider Sangria into it. Garnish with a few apple slices and a cinnamon stick, if desired. Cheers!
