  • 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.
