Thanksgiving is just a week away. I’m sure by now you know if you’re having apple or pumpkin pie and you even have your turkey purchased, but what about something to delicious to drink? Caramel Apple Sangria is a make head drink that you don’t have to worry about slaving over. It takes less than 10 minutes to put together and family members can help themselves leaving you time to perfect all those little finishing touches.
Caramel Apple Sangria starts with just three simple ingredients. Caramel Vodka, Moscato Wine and Apple Cider. These three liquids get combined together in a large vessel before adding in some chopped up apples and a few spices. Letting this sit overnight infuses the sangria with apple pie flavors that compliment the sweet caramel notes from the vodka.
The longer it sits, the better it gets! While I typically make caramel apple sangria the day before, you can make it first thing in the morning and still get incredible results. Better yet, the chopped up apples suck up the alcohol and become little shots of sangria all by themselves.
