Caramel Apple Sangria
This seasonally flavored Candy Apple Sangria is the perfect way to enjoy the taste of candy apples without destroying your teeth.
- 1 750 ml bottle of red wine suggestions: Zinfandel or Primitivo, Tempranillo, Bonarda, Garnacha and Nero d’Avola
- 1 cup of apple cider
- 1 cup caramel vodka
- 1/4 cup brandy
- 1 tbsp Triple Sec
- 1 large Granny Smith apple diced
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 4 cinnamon sticks
- 1/2 cup simple syrup optional — I made mine with coconut palm sugar for a deeper, darker flavor
In a large bowl, toss the diced apples with ground cinnamon and transfer to the pitcher. Add the cinnamon sticks.
To the pitcher, add red wine, apple cider, caramel vodka, brandy, triple sec and cooled simply syrup if you're using it.
Stir well. For best flavor, refrigerate for at least two hours before serving.
