I love making a trip to the local apple orchard to stock up on ingredients — while enjoying a brisk fall day.
Caramel Apple Sangria Ingredients
First things first, this sangria is SNEAKY GOOD, so drink responsibly! 😉 Only a handful of ingredients are needed to bring this sangria to life:
Use your favorite brand or bottle here! Since it is the base of the sangria, choose a bottle that you’ll enjoy. You can also use Moscato, which will result in a sweeter sangria. If you don’t like your cocktails quite as sweet, you may want to choose a dryer, crisper bottle since the apple cider and caramel vodka add sweetness to the sangria.
The main apple flavor component! Go for the good apple cider that needs to be refrigerated after opening (the kind that isn’t see-through). Sparkling apple cider would also be a nice touch!
Where allllll the velvety smooth caramel flavor comes from. It even smells like freshly opened caramel!

Grab a couple of bright green Granny Smith apples and perfectly red Gala apples. Thinly slice them and toss them right on in.
