If you're looking for a new Fall cocktail, this Fireball Apple Sangria made with five ingredients is a must try.
In the Summer, when I'm looking to indulge in a cold adult beverage, my go to is sangria. But in the Fall and Winter months, when I'm feeling under the weather, I sip on a little Fireball or Cinnamon Whiskey to help soothe my throat. I don't know if it medically works, but it seems to do the trick.
So the combination of my two favorites combined in this Fireball Apple Sangria makes this my new favorite Fall drink. I've made a few sangria recipes before like this red apple sangria, a red wine sangria and even Italian Sangria, but I have to say I really liked the flavors in this one best. Not to mention it was super easy to make too.
How do you make Fireball Apple Sangria?
For this recipe you'll need Fireball Whiskey (or any other brand of Cinnamon Whiskey, dry red wine, apple cider, chopped apples and a cinnamon stick.
Start by adding the whiskey, wine, apple cider and a cinnamon stick to a cocktail shaker; then mix well. Add crushed ice to two 6-ounce glasses, add some chopped apples to each; then pour the cocktail into the glasses. Or pour into one large sangria glass, I won't tell.
If you prefer, you can also make this "martini style" by adding the ice to the shaker before mixing; then pour into a martini glass and garnish with a slice of red apple.
As you can see, this recipe makes two drinks. To make a larger quantity in a pitcher, use the slide bar under the servings section in the recipe card below to increase the ingredients proportionately. The only suggestion I would make is that you really only need 1-2 cinnamon sticks to get the extra cinnamon flavor.
This Fireball Apple Sangria was so refreshing and the cinnamon and apple flavors are perfect for Fall entertaining. ~Enjoy!
