This Apple Cider Sangria is the perfect cocktail for this weird transitional season we’re having right now. Yes, it’s October, but it’s 80 degrees right now. Not exactly sipping-hot-cider weather, is it?
Don’t worry, I got you. With this Apple Cider Sangria, you can enjoy the flavors of fall, in a cool and refreshing fall drink.
The combination of the apple pie spirits and the amaretto is so good. Add fresh apple cider and a little sparkle from the ginger ale, and this drink will give you all the fall feels, even if it’s hot out.
And you know what makes this extra awesome? It’s so easy!
You mix it in a couple of pint-sized mason jars, and when you’re ready to serve, you just take the lid off and drink it right from the jar.
Fewer dishes to wash means more time for sangria-sipping. Winning.
Slice your fruit up, and tuck it into the bottom of your jars. Then add the amaretto and apple pie spirits, put the lids on, and stick them in the fridge for a couple of hours, so the fruit can flavor the alcohol even more.
And so the fruit can absorb some of the alcohol, which will make a nice crispy little alcohol-infused snack after your sangria is gone. It’s okay, this is a judgement-free zone.
When you’re ready to serve it, add the apple cider and ginger ale, and garnish with apple wedges and cinnamon sticks.
That’s it! I told it was easy….
You could definitely double this, or quadruple or whatever, and make it in multiple mason jars or a pitcher for continuous serving.
Because depending on this weather, and let’s face it, life in general right now, you’re probably going to want more than one.
Apple Cider Sangria
- 1 medium apple cored and thinly sliced
- 2 orange wedges leave peel on
- 8 ounces apple cider
- 2 ounces amaretto
- 1 ounce apple pie flavored spirits
- 6 ounces ginger ale
- 2 cinnamon sticks for garnish
- Core your apple and thinly slice. Place the apple slices into two pint mason jars, along with one orange wedge in each.
- Add 1 ounce of amaretto to each jar, along with ½ to 1 ounce of the apple pie flavored alcohol of your choice. You can adjust the amount, depending on how strong you like your sangria 😛.
- Put the lids on the mason jars, and place in the fridge for a couple of hours to allow the fruit to flavor the alcohol even more.
- After a couple of hours, remove the jars from the fridge. Fill the mason jars about halfway with your favorite apple cider, and the rest of the way with ginger ale.
- Garnish with cinnamon sticks and extra apple wedges.
