Apple Cider Sangria

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.

Use mason jars to prepare and serve Apple Cider Sangria

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.

    I ALWAYS love the mix between apple cider and amaretto, and adding more cinnamon flavor makes this so warm and flavorful! I should serve a jug of this at Thanksgiving!
