Caramel apple cider sangria mason jars are a hit amongst my friends! Whether winding down from the past week or gathering together to watch our favorite show, this drink has become one of our go-to spirited elixirs- and for good reason!

The infusion of caramel vodka, pear, and club soda makes you feel like you're drinking candied pears. And adding the red apples and Pinot Grigio in, this drink makes it seem like you're having extra dessert.

Sangria is always a good choice for a get-together.

Caramel Apple Sangria Is Perfect For

  • Family events
  • Evening gatherings
  • Fall fests
  • Cold weather
  • Football and soccer games
  • Enjoying time around a bonfire
  • Sippin' by the fireplace
  • Thanksgiving dinner

Already a festive punch, sangria is traditionally made with wine and citrus fruits, gifted or prepared for various holiday events.

When creating caramel apple cider sangria, I wanted a mix that would go beyond just the holiday season. One where, regardless of weather, it would be a good choice for relaxing and enjoying.

This caramel apple sangria does just that and then some. It's a soul warmer like no other, and a delightful sip rivaling the classic Hot Toddy.

Homemade Caramel Apple Sangria is like bobbing for apples mixed with caramel-covered apples but only for adults! If you love making and eating caramel apples, or enjoyed bobbing for apples as a kid, you'll love this DIY Apple Sangria.

Apple Cider - Did You know?

Did you know that it takes approximately 17 large apples or 19 small apples to make one cup of apple cider? Could you eat 19 apples in one sitting? Considering the fiber intake, I might be able to eat 2 large apples, but 3 would be my tipping point.

There are many alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks that use apple cider, such as Bourbon mixes, Margaritas, and sparkling fruit punches.

Apple cider is a raw form of apple juice, we touch on the difference between apple cider and apple juice in our Caramel Apple Latte recipe.

Caramel Apple Sangria Is Easy To Pair With

  • Pork
  • Chicken
  • Cheese
  • Fried Foods
  • Seafood
  • Citrus pies like Key Lime Pie or Lemon cobbler

Think grilled pork chops with balsamic vinaigrette or Mozarella cheese sticks as lunch or dinner options. Or maybe try a fried batch of shrimp, oysters, or breaded chicken wings. When it comes to cheese, stay close to the light and creamy variety as they pair well with the citrus notes of the Pinot Grigio.

Sangria Variations

  • Trade out your regular cider for some sparkling cider to take this drink recipe up another notch.
  • Trade out your caramel vodka for regular vodka if caramel isn't your thing but you want some delicious apple sangria.
  • Trade out your vodka in general for some fireball. The cinnamon whiskey pairs amazingly well with the apples.
  • We haven't tried it, but, we imagine Apple Pie Moonshine would also go well in this sangria instead of the caramel vodka.
  • Trade out club soda for apple flavored sparkling water for even more of a fall, crisp apple flavor.
  • You can also substitute gingerale for the club soda.
  • Waiting to add the club soda until right before you serve it really brings a bubbly addition to your sangria.
  • Pour in some homemade caramel syrup for some real caramel sweetness.


Can You Make Sangria Ahead Of Time?

If you're making this sangria for a party or to enjoy later, it's nice to make it ahead of time and get it out of the way while you get other tasks done.

You can make this sangria recipe then store in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours. This also gives all the flavors sufficient time to mix together and really bring out a delicious mixture.

Make sure to stir this sangria up again before you serve and enjoy.

What Kind of Apples to Use In Apple Sangria?

You can use whatever kind of apples you have available for your homemade sangria recipe.

We prefer to use generally sweeter apples, but sometimes a tart one adds a nice twist:

  • Ambrosia
  • Fuji
  • Gala
  • Honeycrisp
  • McIntosh
  • Pink Lady
  • Red Delicious
  • Snap Dragon
