as I mentioned in my last post, my oldest son and Daughter-in-law Amanda were in town for 3 weeks. ( click Here for more info on why such a long visit )
Last fall she was telling me about a sangria recipe that she stumbled upon somewhere that required caramel apple vodka. My son drove all around Jacksonville looking for it. When she finally made it, she said she couldn’t wait to visit so that we could make it
( she also makes a mean citrus sangria that’s usually waiting for me when I visit them )
For the first part of their visit, alcohol was off-limits, but near the end we were able to enjoy this
When we first made it, it was a bit strong… So we tweaked it just a bit
1 part white wine
1 part caramel apple vodka ( Denver friends, I found it at Target in Glendale on the corner of Colorado boulevard and Virginia)
2 parts apple cider
Cinnamon stick (which we didn’t have, but I’d add one next time)
Add the liquids together in a pitcher. Slice the apples and add the cinnamon stick.
I rimmed a glass magarita-style with apple pie spice and filled with ice.
This was sooo tasty! Another friend of mine was just telling me about a fall sangria that used fireball candies! Doesn’t that sound fun?
I’ve been taking pictures and writing recipes down.. I’m trying to get better about sharing them with y’all. I also have a few ideas for fun giveaways!
fall is my favorite time of year! I come to life in autumn 😎
Here’s some of my past apple recipes
So.. What’s your favorite thing about fall?
