  • 1 sliced apple
  • 1 bottle (750ml) dry red wine
  • 1 cup cranberry juice
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • ¼ cup orange liqueur
  • ¼ cup brandy
  • Club Soda 


Add cinnamon sticks, apple and orange slices to the bottom of a large pitcher. Pour in the wine, cranberry juice, apple cider, orange liqueur. 

Stir to mix. Place pitcher in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or up to 1 day. 

To serve, pour Sangria over ice in glasses. Spoon some of the fruit in each class. Top each glass with a spritz of club soda. 

Lauren’s Quick Tips

  • Make this the day before and add club soda when serving
  • Change up the fruit for a variation. Plums, pears, and berries are all good choices.
  • If you don’t have brandy-don’t sweat it—t will still be delish
  • Use an inexpensive pinot noir (lighter) or cabernet sauvignon for this red fall sangria
  • If you’d like to garnish the glasses, use a sprig of rosemary, or an orange slice
