This Cider Sangria is super easy to make! Lots of fun flavors like apple, maple, and cinnamon all in one glass! If you’re having a party this fall, this is a great drink recipe to try! If you’re looking for something for the kids without the alcohol, try my Easy Maple Apple Milkshake recipe. The milkshakes are delicious and a fun treat for the kids! But let’s talk about this sangria…
Ohhh how I love New England in the fall! The winter, not so much, but fall, YES! It’s so beautiful here and always lots of apples and fall activities. I thought it was a good time for a new fall cocktail, so here’s my latest cocktail, Cider Sangria.
You may remember, although probably not, my family did a New England trip (aka my New England Food Tour) a few years ago and we went to all sorts of fun places. Just try not to laugh at the horrible old pics in that post, k?
I’m embarrassed to say that I bought a bottle of apple wine and maple liqueur during that trip and never used either! Totally forgot about them both until my husband mentioned them. Well, I’m so glad he did, because I can’t wait to use the apple wine and maple liqueur again. Both were delicious!
Next thing I knew, I was mixing a bunch of stuff together and out came this Cider Sangria! Thirsty yet? Besides the apple wine and maple liqueur, I added apple cider, chopped apple, and cinnamon then put my glass (lots of cute sangria glasses available!) in the fridge for a few hours. When I took it out I then topped the Cider Sangria with a little sparkling water. Ginger ale would also probably be good instead of sparkling water.
Garnish the sangria with some cinnamon sticks, and you have a fun fall drink. Love!
The recipe makes 1 drink, but you could easily make a big batch and put in a pitcher for a party.
Hope you enjoy!

SNAPPY TIPS: The recipe makes one serving, but you could multiply and make in a large pitcher for a party.
SNAPPY SUBSTITUTIONS: Instead of sparkling water, you could omit or substitute ginger ale.
