Spiced Apple Cider Sangria is the PERFECT Sangria for fall! Light, sweet and absolutely delicious.
Everything about fall just makes me smile. One thing I ALWAYS crave during fall is a good red wine sangria or a mulled wine. The weather just feels perfect to sip some red wine with.
This recipe was inspired by an apple cider sangria I had tried a while back but that was filled with refined sugar and a questionable brand of triple sec. So I decided to make my own with Organic apple cider, pinot noir, Gran Marnier, and organic maple syrup. You can totally enjoy this without all the guilt!
If you don’t want to buy all of the individual spices for this spiced apple sangria, you can pick up some apple pie spice to substitute! I use primal palate brand and I love it!
This apple cider sangria feels totally indulgent, and smells like fall in a glass. Sangria is perfect to pair with your next Sunday brunch along with my Apple Pie Overnight Oats. Sunday funday done right
