Everyone loves caramel apples, right? With all the wonderful craft ciders popping up we couldn’t resist using one to create a liquid version of this tasty seasonal treat. This shareable tipple is best enjoyed outdoors with the smell of fallen leaves. Ah, yes. It is fall at last!
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 (750ml) bottle white wine
2 (12oz) bottles hard apple cider
2 apples, sliced
cinnamon sticks (optional)
First things first. Swirl your wine glasses with caramel sauce. (Inside! Not out.)
Place them upside-down on parchment paper and chill in the freezer for 1 hour.
Now on to the sangria. If you’re wondering what kind of wine to use, it really doesn’t matter too much for this cocktail. We used moscato here, but any white will make a good base.
Go ahead and pour the whole bottle (750ml) into a large pitcher.
The type of apple doesn’t really matter, either. Pick your favorite.
Slice ‘em and toss ‘em right in with the wine.
Above is what we’ve done so far.
Now let’s add some bubbles …
Pour in 2 (12oz) bottles of your favorite hard cider. We prefer one that’s not too sweet.
And now the best part …
That’s right, Black Walnut SweetShine! 3 oz will due here, but feel free to add as much as you like. Give it a stir and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
Remember the glasses we prepped earlier?
It’s time to fill ‘em up! We added some apple slices and a cinnamon stick to be fancy, but those are optional.
There you have it. SweetShine’s Caramel Walnut Apple Sangria.
