How do you make Apple Cider Sangria?

We’re not lying when we say sangria is easy to make! All you do is mix together all of the ingredients and then let sit for anywhere from 2 to 24 hours. When you are ready to serve, you can add in the carbonated water. Additionally, you may want to have some fresh fruit on hand to top off the glasses with.

How to Make it a Mocktail

This drink is so festive for all of the fall holidays and gatherings. Make it a cocktail by omitting the white wine and vodka and replacing it with additional half carbonated water and half fresh squeezed orange juice!

How far in advance should sangria be made?

Sangria should be made at least 2 hours before serving, so all the fruit can mix well with the rest of the ingredient and so that it can have time to chill! Sangria gets better and better as it sits, so even 24 hours ahead will be great.

Ingredients

Scale

  • 1/2 cup vodka
  • 21/2 cups fresh apple cider
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger, optional
  • 1 cup carbonated water or club soda

For Garnish:

  • Additional fruit
  • Paleo Caramel, for the rim of the glass, optional

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to a large pitcher, except carbonated water. Let sit
  2. Serve over ice with fresh fruit!

Notes

The longer it sits, the better! Make at least two before serving, or up to 24 and let it sit in the fridge.

There are many gluten-free vodkas out there, my two favorite are Ciroc Vodka and Tito’s Handmade Vodka. Tequila and rum are generally naturally gluten-free. Read labels and be cautious of added flavors.

  2. I made this for a tailgate gathering. I started out serving it chilled, but the weather turned cold. I served it warm and it was a hit!
