I originally published this Apple Pie Sangria in October 2013 and it quickly became (and has stayed) one of the most popular recipes on The Cookie Rookie.

Even with the outdated pictures, each Fall it has set the standard on the site. I’ve updated the pictures but kept some of the old ones because Scout was just way too cute. This post made me want to make this site into a business, and I hope you love it as much as we have! 

Autumn is on it’s way, and I’m officially in love with this favorite drink, Apple Pie Sangria. It is….amazing. It tastes like leaves turning colors and Christmas on its way! (i know i’m very dramatic) but this drink really is SO good. It’s simple, has only a few ingredients, and was a big hit. It even had beer drinking men asking for more. If you want to win those holiday parties, this Apple Pie Sangria is for you!

Apple Pie Sangria!!! TO DIE FOR. cute puppy too :)

There’s young baby Scout in 2013 (she was only 4! How is that possible!) helping me make my first batch of Apple Pie Sangria. We have been making it ever since!

We have made so many favorite cocktails on The Cookie Rookie throughout the years, but I always seem to go back to Apple Pie Sangria. This year I’ve switched out a couple ingredients, swapping the club soda for ginger ale and deciding to stick to my original favorite Caramel Vodka. The flavors mix together as the day goes on, and it just gets tastier and tastier. It really is the ultimate party drink. As you can see below, I’ve tried to match it over and over again. I love all of my cocktail recipes, but SHHHHH this is my favorite and probably always will be.

Before I started the blog and hadn’t made any homemade cocktails for myself (let alone actual recipes), sangria seemed like a complicated idea to me. Something I would only order in restaurants. WHY?! It’s so easy. Juice, vodka, wine. Repeat. It’s that simple.

Apple Pie Sangria - The Cookie Rookie

When I make this Apple Pie Sangria I usually let it sit in the fridge for about 2-3 hours and then added two cinnamon sticks about 1 hour before serving. Since the cider already has a kick of cinnamon, you don’t need the sticks to add too much spice.  (Note: you can also save the Ginger Ale until right before serving if you want the bubbly effect.  I used it more to cut the sweetness, but it adds a nice sizzle!) Be sure to stir stir stir to allow all the flavors to blend together fully.

      Made t for Easter before drink, it was delicious. I used sparkling apple cider at the end for bubbled effect. It was a hit and asked to make it for our soup a thon in October.

The sangria looks delicious but it's the dog who wins my heart. What a cutie!
    becky
    thank you!!! she is quite a character :)
Kari
Do the apples start to brown by letting it sit overnight? I'm trying this for a party, excited!
    becky gall hardin
    they wont really brown overnight, but would brown after 2 nights for sure. i would recommend keeping it refrigerated overnight. i'm so glad youre trying it!! let me know how you like it :)
Lisa
Sounds delish! A must try. But I have to admit that when I saw this recipe on FB, it was little corner of it that showed your dog that got me to click on it :) She looks like my Jake! Thanks for the recipe....and the smile!
    becky gall hardin
    aw i love that!! she's a charmer, i'm sure your jake is too :) aren't they just the best. hope you like the recipe!
Krissy
Will any white wine do or something specific? A white zin, chardenay or moscato?
    becky gall hardin
    I think dryer white wine works best, because the apple cider is already so sweet. but if you want to make it even sweeter, a moscato would make for a great dessert drink!
Kari
Such a big hit at our party over the weekend. Had to make a second batch! A definite keeper for fall/winter holiday celebrations. Thanks!
    becky gall hardin
    oh awesome i'm so glad!!!! so it was okay overnight? love, love this :) thanks so much for letting me know!
liz

Which dry white wine, there are only a gazillion out there? Want to make it for a party this weekend, but want it to be perfect since it is a wine party!!!! Plus your 4-legged baby is adorable-we have a black one named Izzabella.
    becky gall hardin
    wine parties are the best kind of parties!!! really any white wine will work. i say dry because the cider is so sweet, sweet white wine might be overkill. i think a pinot grigio would be really good...we used just a very cheap table wine...it adds crispness but isn't overwhelming. let me know what you use and how you like it! so glad you're making it :)
Sarah
Can't wait to try this for Thanksgiving. LOVE your dog. Love the sideways head turn.
    becky gall hardin
    thank you!!!! she definitely loves to have her picture taken ha. she always has. I hope you like the drink, please let me know if you try it! thanks so much for stopping by the blog :)

Made the Apple Pie Sangria for the Wine Party-well received, although nobody went gaga over it, least of all my hubby, and no one asked for the recipe-not altogether a great sign for me, because people usually do. I think it is a fun recipe, would I make it again-no- was I glad I made it-yes-. I have been wanting that great beverage dispenser that is in the above picture (sold at Target) forever and this got me off my back side and finally purchased one. So I am happy!!!!
    becky gall hardin
    oh, i'm sorry it wasn't a hit. i have had great reception with it, but everyone is different. thanks for trying it! yes we love our beverage dispenser, one of my favorite things!!! we got it as a wedding gift, so fun!
