Sangria is a fun and versatile cocktail that is delicious and refreshing all year round. Theses beautiful fall sangria cocktails are beyond perfect for the crisp autumn days.
Sangria is amazing because you can start with any combination of wine, fruit, liquor and spices that you let marinate overnight for a delicious flavor. The ingredients that makes these sangrias fall friendly is the fresh fruit and spices.
Since apples and cinnamon go hand in hand, these fall flavors stand out and make for a refreshing autumn drink. Typically wine is the base for a sangria then you layer flavors with a complimentary liquor like brandy or bourbon, you can also add something carbonated like club soda, champange, or ginger beer. To finish add the fresh fruit to absorb the alcohol and marinate. My favorite part is the wine soaked fruit because the fruit is bright and bursting with the sangria flavor that you can eat once it has been drunk!
Pro sangria tip: Make the sangria ahead of time like overnight or at least 10-12 hours in advance. This helps the flavors come together and properly infuse its juices. Sangria is all about the wine and fruit so it’s a really important step! The golden rule is that sangria gets better as it sits.
