Cocktail Friday | Autumn Cider Sangria

I'm so excited that autumn is nearly upon us! Not only is it the most gorgeous time of year in New England, it's also one of the most yummy times for flavor. Apples, pumpkins, and spices are among my favorites. Those flavors make me think of comfy sweaters, cool nights, and changing leaves. And after some experimenting, I'm thrilled with this autumn cider sangria!

Autumn Cider Sangria:
1 bottle sparkling wine
2 cans hard apple cider (my personal favorite is Downeast Cider)
1 cup sugar
3 apples of different variations (I chose granny smith, red delicious, and gala)
1 orange
1 lemon

Pour sparkling wine and hard cider into a pitcher. Add sugar and stir.

Cut up fruit and add to the pitcher.

Refrigerate for at least an hour. Pour and enjoy! Cheers!


  1. Have never seen an Autumn sangria. What I remember was based with red wine. But this sounds more yummy!


    1. Red wine is definitely more traditional, but I couldn't help but experiment! :)
