🥫 Storage instructions
If you have any leftover sangria, it’s best to store it in the fridge. The cinnamon and caramel will settle to the bottom of the container as it cools, and the club soda will lose its fizz. No big deal.
It honestly doesn’t matter. There’s a lot of sweetness in this recipe, so a tart variety is perfectly fine.
What’s the best kind of wine for sangria?
An inexpensive white that’s not too sweet. I usually use Pinot Grigio. Just make sure you don’t waste your money and pick a pricy bottle!
👩🏻🍳 Expert tips
- I added caramel sauce to this sangria, just the jarred sauce that is used for topping ice cream. A note of caution- it will settle to the bottom and not look super beautiful. But it still adds a little extra sweetness so I kept it in the recipe. It will still be delicious without the caramel if you would prefer to leave it out.
- Fresh fruit is a crucial ingredient for any sangria recipe. You might be tempted to chop up some pears and throw them in but when I tried this they browned and fell apart.
- The type of wine you use is not important, as long as its white wine. Dry or sweet will both work, it doesn’t really make a difference.
- Since the apple cider is a big portion of this recipe, you will want one that you know you like! Fresh apple cider is best, either from your favorite farm stand or just the grocery store.
- You can customize this recipe to your liking. Try adding pomegranate seeds, orange slices, pear brandy, and anything else with fall flavors.
