Red Wine Apple Cider Fall Sangria
This Red Wine Apple Cider Fall Sangria is perfect for all your holiday parties and events! The flavours are so reminiscent of fall and it tastes amazing!
I may or may not be drinking a glass of this fall sangria will writing this post. Who knows, we’ll call it further recipe testing. We are in the HEART of fall which means Thanksgiving and holiday events are right around the corner. Whether you have or haven’t already started planning your holiday party menus, you need to add this Red Wine Apple Cider Fall Sangria to this list!! It is GORGEOUS, it tastes divine, and it tastes so good! It’s also the best way to use up all those fall fruits you have in your fridge.
We love making sangrias by the season around here. I’m actually not a sweet drink person (I prefer more tart drinks) but sangrias always get me. That’s probably why this fall sangria has been my favourite sangria that I’ve ever made. I made mine with apple cider, red wine and some simple syrup, but the kicker is definitely the fruits.
I added a lot of fruits into this sangria because I think it’s so fun to eat the wine soaked fruits at the bottom of the glass. Pomegranate arils, Granny Smith, Red Apples and cranberries were added to brighten up this sangria to make it even more gorgeous. My favourite parts were definitely eating the Granny Smith apples, the arils and the cranberries because they give such a nice tart contrast to the sweet sangria.
I have a divine recipe for apple cider coming up that you can use here. Until then, you can make your own or find a delicious store-bought natural version. The homemade simple syrup that you add into the sangria will depend on how sweet your apple cider is, so definitely remember that.
Anyway, less talking, MORE SANGRIA. Your guests will love how delicious this is and how gorgeous all the fruits make it. Enjoy, friends!
Red Wine Apple Cider Fall Sangria
- ¼ cup coconut or cane sugar
- ¼ cup water
- 1 Granny Smith apple, cored and cubed
- 1 Gala/Honey crisp apple, cored and cubed
- ⅓ cup pomegranate arils
- ½ cup fresh cranberries
- 3 cinnamon sticks
- 1 bottle red wine
- 2 cups sweetened apple cider
- ½ cup red rum or bourbon
- In a pot over high heat, stir the water and sugar until it comes to a boil. Boil together until they form a simple syrup for about 1 minute. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. You want to use ½ cup of the final simple syrup (so you might have some leftover). You can use more if you want it sweetener!
- In a jug/pitcher, mix all the other ingredients together. Add the simple syrup and swirl to sweeten the sangria.
- You can sneak in a sip now, but refrigerate for 4 hours to overnight for the flavours to meld together properly and be smoother. Enjoy!!

So delicious!! The recipe is easy and straight forward, and it makes a delicious product. Even without the cranberries (which the grocery store was out of), it was so good.
We made ours with Wild Turkey American Honey & Apothic Red blend. Will be making again and again. 🙂
Thanks so much AJ! We’re so happy that you like it.
