Caramel Apple Sangria

This Caramel Apple Sangria is one of the most highly requested cocktails to date for any fall gathering that we go to. It’s just so fun, festive and full of fall flavor that you just can’t resist! Even ask my Grandma, she drank two full glasses of it last year at Thanksgiving! Not only is this sangria all sorts of delicious, but it’s vibrant colors and festive smell will have you ready to snuggle up in a blanket next to a fire while you watch the leaves drop outside.

I originally posted this recipe last year on KJ & Company and it just has been so good that new pictures were necessary. I’ve already whipped up a batch this year and oh boy, it went down smooth! This sangria is perfect for football parties, fall dinners, campfires, Halloween parties and even Thanksgiving. It’s basically the cocktail to carry you through the fall season and holidays!

It’s all the wonderful flavors of a caramel apple in a glass without the caramel sticking to your teeth! You all know what I mean when you bite into a caramel apple – you have to be ready to get the caramel unstuck. The smooth sweetness from the caramel, the fruity kick from the apples and the warm coating at the back of your throat from the cinnamon makes this sangria the perfect concoction.

This is the perfect, easy, fun and festive cocktail to have up your sleeve this fall and holiday season to please a crowd. Twist up your fall menu or bring some fun in a glass to Thanksgiving. Either way, you won’t be disappointed!
