A Festive Fall Sangria

This festive fall sangria is the perfect sip for autumn, made with deep red wine, fresh apple cider, spicy cinnamon, and seasonal fruits.
Prep Time 15 minutes



  • 1 750 mL Bottle Garnacha, or Spanish Red Wine
  • 1/2 Cup Bitter Amaro
  • 1 1/2 Cups Farm Fresh Apple Cider
  • Juice from 1 Cara Cara Orange
  • Slices from 1 Cara Cara Orange
  • 1 Seasonal Fall Apple sliced
  • 1 Cup Cranberries
  • 1-2 Cinnamon Sticks

Honey Simple Syrup

  • 1/4 Cup Honey
  • 1/4 Cup Water


  • To make the honey simple syrup, add the honey and the water to a small saucepan and heat up on medium-low heat until the honey has “melted” into the water. When done, let cool slightly before adding to the sangria.
  • In a large pitcher (or similarly large vessel), combine the Garnacha, Amaro, cooled honey simple syrup, and apple cider. 
  • Squeeze in the juice from 1 Cara Cara orange, and add in the other orange slices, apple slices, cinnamon sticks, and cranberries.
  • Mix well.
  • For best results, let everything “sit” in the fridge for at least an hour. (This helps the flavors of the fruit infuse into the sangria!)
  • When ready to serve, ladle into glasses and garnish with fresh orange slices.
  • Enjoy!


I didn’t put a serving size here because everybody enjoys their sangria in different quantities! But if I had to guess, this sangria will yield about 8-10 moderately-poured wine glasses.
