Spiced Apple Sangria

Loveplayingdressup-ootd-neha-gandhi-sangria-novica-6There’s something about Fall that makes me go into a hibernation mode. But not the lazy kinds – more of a – let’s have all our friends over instead of going out and have a wonderful time, indoors! Now don’t judge us – but most times having a blast in our household is synonymous with alcohol.. a lot of it. So you’ll understand why I love this sangria recipe … its pretty boozy and is bursting with fall flavors! Apple cider, cinnamon and freshly picked apples.Loveplayingdressup-ootd-neha-gandhi-sangria-novica-1 Loveplayingdressup-ootd-neha-gandhi-sangria-novica-2 Loveplayingdressup-ootd-neha-gandhi-sangria-novica-3

Recipe – yields about 8 glasses


  • 1 bottle White wine ( I used Franciscan White and love the subtle sweetness – but any white wine will work & it doesn’t have to be fancy/expensive )
  • Ginger ale
  • apple slices
  • cinnamon sticks
  • 2 cups clear/white rum
  • 2 cups apple cider ( I use the one available at the grocery store )
  • 1-2 tsp cinnamon powder ( optional )


  • Add all ingredients.You can play with the ginger ale & rum quantities – depending on how boozy you like your drink.
  • I’d recommend refrigerating for a few hours but if its short notice ( or personal craving! ) – a few ice-cubes are fine as well. Make sure it doesn’t get too watery.
  • I am a huge fan of cinnamon, so in addition to the cinnamon sticks – I like dusting a little bit on my drink as well ( but Amit doesn’t like it as much – so that’s just depending on your preference )Loveplayingdressup-ootd-neha-gandhi-sangria-novica-7Loveplayingdressup-ootd-neha-gandhi-sangria-novica-5 Loveplayingdressup-ootd-neha-gandhi-sangria-novica-9 Loveplayingdressup-ootd-neha-gandhi-sangria-novica-8 Loveplayingdressup-ootd-neha-gandhi-sangria-novica-11
