Cinnamon Apple Sangria

Ah, Sangria. What was once a summer refresher is now my excuse to drink a fruit concoction year round without judgment. Once the world figured out that anything with wine, juice, fruit, and liquor was sangria, we went wild.

This is a really sweet drink and also a really strong drink. For those of you with a sweet tooth, beware, for those of you without, this will help you pace yourself. A word to the wise, let the apples soak overnight. The boozier the fruit, the more you will inevitably enjoy whatever family holiday you are stuck at.

Cinnamon Apple Sangria


  • 3 large apples, cubed
  • 1/3 c Fireball whiskey
  • 1 bottle pinot grigio
  • 3-4 cups fresh apple cider (per preferred taste)
  • 1 bottle prosecco/champagne


  1. Soak the apples in the whiskey overnight, just do it.
  2. In large pitcher, pour whiskey (and apples), add wine and apple cider. Refrigerate for one hour.
  3. Fill each glass half way with cider mixture and fill the rest of the way with bubbles. Be sure to scoop some apples into each glass. Add a cinnamon stick garnish for stirring, if desired.
  4. Enjoy (responsibly)!
