Red Apple Cider Sangria

Red Apple Cider Sangria is the ultimate sangria for fall! It is sweetened with a touch of maple syrup and instead of brandy I used a bit of grand marnier for a little hint of orange.

  • 3 apples sliced
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 standard 750mL chilled bottle pinot noir
  • 2 cups cold apple cider
  • 1/2 cup grand marnier liqueur
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup

for the rim

  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 orange wedge


  • In the bottom of a pitcher, add the apple slices and cinnamon sticks. Pour in the wine, apple cider, grand marnier and maple syrup. Stir to mix. Stick it in the fridge for 30 minutes to bring everything together. (You can leave it in a bit longer if you'd like!)
  • To serve, mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon on a plate. Rim the glasses with an orange wedge and dip in the cinnamon sugar. Fill the glasses with ice and pour the sangria over top, being sugar to get some of the fruit in there. ENJOY.
