Cocktails are so fun to plan, because there is one for every occasion. Every season, every life event has a cocktail that goes well with it. But making cocktails for parties is actually very annoying. Enter sangria. Everyone loves sangria. Do all the (very minimal) work ahead of time, pop it in the fridge while you do the rest of party prep, and a delicious drink is ready for a crowd.

But this sangria is the best of all. It’s sweet and perfect for fall.

Ingredients for fall sangria

Fresh fruit is a crucial ingredient for any sangria recipe. I wanted to add both fresh apples and fresh pears, but the pears did not hold up so well. Apples give plenty of fresh fruit flavor, and kept their shape and color. I used Honeycrisp, but there’s no much sweetness, that Granny Smith would work very well too.

The most unusual thing you will need is the pear vodka, which is absolutely delicious. If you can’t find it, you can use regular vodka and add 1/4 cup of pear nectar, which is available at the grocery store.

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.

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 the just the grocery time.
