Pitcher of sangria made from apple ciderIngredients Needed

  • 1 bottle white wine

  • Carbonated water
  • Cinnamon sticks
  • Gluten-free vodka
  • Apples
  • Honey
  • Cinnamon
  • Pomegranate Seeds
  • Orange slices

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.

Servings 8
Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes


  • 2 apples roughly chopped
  • 1 orange sliced
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1 bottle of your favorite white wine Pinot Grigio is great here
  • 1/2 cup vodka
  • 2-1/2 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:


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


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.

  3. 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!
