For an easy and delicious fall sangria recipe, this caramel apple sangria checks all the boxes. Sweet caramel vodka, tart apple liqueur, and a bottle of your favorite white wine make up this easy and refreshing sangria. Fresh green apple slices add to the tartness and presentation of the cocktail. Typically sangria sits overnight to let all the flavors combine. In this recipe, we are serving it right away so that even the host (you!) can enjoy the party and this delightful drink.

Best Wine for Sangria

The key to any great sangria is combining wine or champagne with the right liquor and some fruit to get the perfect balance of flavors. Since sangria is very customizable (one of the best parts of it!), different wines work well for different recipes.

Whether you are making a red sangria recipe or a white sangria drink, you’ll want to use a wine that you enjoy the flavor of and that suits your desired sweetness. Budget-friendly wines are great options for sangrias since numerous ingredients meld together to achieve the end result. For this fall sangria recipe, I used sparkling white wine which adds some carbonation without being too sweet.

How to Make Caramel Apple Sangria

My favorite part about this cocktail is that it comes together in under five minutes.  It is perfect for a last minute get-together or to bring over to a party.  If you run out, you can quickly make another batch in minutes.

  1. Combine your vodka, apple liqueur, white wine, and green apple slices in a large glass pitcher.
  2. Serve chilled in glasses

How to Serve

Keep your caramel apple sangria chilled and serve in stemless wine glasses. Having your ingredients chilled ahead of time helps to make this sangria ready to serve immediately. Add extra green apple slices and serve over ice if desired.
