With tart green apple and sweet caramel flavor this Caramel Apple Sangria is sure to be a winner at any fall gathering or event.
I don't know about you but as soon as fall hits I want everything apple and pumpkin! The weather starts cooling down, school is back in session, and it just seems like it's a good time to start using these warmer flavors.
I've been trying a collection of wine and tend to have a glass or two every weekend. While I enjoy a glass of wine sometimes I want to jazz it up. That's why I like sangria so much.
I happen to have Organic Fuji apples from Melissa's Produce and Torani Puremade Green Apple Syrup so I thought Apple Sangria with white wine would be fun to make. I have another apple sangria on my blog but it uses red wine and just feels heavier. When I went to look for the syrup I actually found I had a bottle of Torani Puremamde caramel syrup as well and decided to turn my drink into a Caramel Apple Sangria.
To make this beverage I started with a dry white wine because I don't like my sangria overly sweet. If you prefer a lighter and sweeter sangria use your favorite sweet white wine.
I mixed together the caramel and green apple syrup and then needed to decide on a liquor. My first thought was vodka because it's easy to use in drinks but I ended up going with bourbon because there is just something that works with bourbon and apples. They pair nicely and the bourbon will really warm you up.
I finished by pouring in the white wine and apple pieces and letting it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours. At minimum let it sit in the refrigerator 4 hours to get all the flavors blended together.
This sangria was delightful. My husband said it tasted like fall in a cup and I have to agree. Tart green apple, sweet caramel, warm bourbon, and white wine topped off with bubbly sparkling water made for the perfect fall sangria recipe.
Pro Tips and Substitutions:
- If you like more fruit in your sangria you can add several types of apples or throw orange slices in with the apples.
- Pour the sparkling water in only when ready to serve so that it stays bubbly. You can offer a variety of flavored sparkling water if you are having a party to add another dimension of flavor to the sangria and so it's customizable.
- To add a little spice throw in a few cinnamon sticks before putting the sangria in the refrigerator.
