This Red Apple Sangria is the perfect drink for fall! Imagine yourself relaxing, perhaps sitting by a fire or creating this drink for a party. It is easy to make and should be on your must try list!
This tasty beverage is one of my favorites for fall – it’s a copycat version of a drink that still may be on the Applebee’s menu. I know sangria can be a year-round drink but the combo of the wine and apple liqueur reminds me of fall time.
I first noticed this drink a couple years ago when we went out with friends and saw it on the table next to me. I decided to give it a try and once I did I was on the search for the recipe. A good friend of mine found this version and I say it comes pretty close to the original!
Since you may want to serve this to a larger crowd, you could adjust the recipe accordingly and top with the Sierra Mist after they are poured! Enjoy!
