Sparkling Apple Cider Sangria
If you’re looking for the perfect fall party drink I have the recipe for you! With fall upon us and Halloween mere days away, I’m looking forward to many an upcoming family gatherings and parties with friends. With fall entertaining, or really any entertaining, I like to have a signature cocktail to serve my guests that mirrors the feel of the season. This easy sparkling apple cider sangria is the perfect fall-themed drink for all of your upcoming parties!
I prefer serving anything sparkling in taller and narrower glassware, so even champagne flutes would work if you don’t have tall highballs on hand! I used sliced Honeycrisp apples in this recipe but really any apple would work. And the cinnamon sticks are the perfect garnish! I think this would also be amazing with orange or pear slices. That’s the beauty of sangria, you can use whatever seasonal fruits that you have on hand!
- 1 750 ml bottle (standard) champagne or prosecco
- 2 1/2 cups Martinelli's sparkling apple cider
- 1 cup club soda
- 1/2 cup amaretto or cognac
- 2 apples (your choice), sliced
- In a large pitcher, combine prosecco, Martinelli's sparkling apple cider, club soda, and amaretto (you can sub in cognac or ginger brandy if you prefer, but I love the amaretto).
- Stir until mixed and add in sliced apples.
- Pour in highball glasses and garnish.
- garnish with cinnamon sticks
Martinelli’s Makes it Easy!
Super easy and amazingly delicious! We always have Martinelli’s Sparkling Apple cider around the house during this time of year. It just doesn’t feel like fall without it. The whole family loves Martinelli’s and the kids enjoy having their own “fancy drink” during fall family dinners!
This recipe can be made in advance but would also be perfect for a bar-cart set-up where guests can add their choice of fruits and mixers. I love the taste of amaretto in mine, but cognac is another great choice. The perfect fall drink for Halloween parties, Thanksgiving, even fall weddings or showers. Cheers!
Thank you to Martinelli’s for partnering on this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
