This Caramel Apple Sangria is only FOUR ingredients and it is delicious! It tastes just like a caramel apple! Such an easy white wine sangria recipe!

In a glass, the Caramel Apple Sangria has a dash of green color with sliced green apples.

The other day someone said something to me and it has me totally thinking about my parenting. Like I’m watching my own parenting now with a microscope.

It’s annoying.

It’s made me question if I’m patient enough with my kiddos. If I am too strict. You know, fun stuff.

I was talking about it with a friend the other day and she said, “Lisa. You are a good mom. It’s the end of summer vacation. You CANNOT judge your parenting based on right now. Give it a solid two weeks before you even think about it again.”

A woman is pouring the Caramel Apple Sangria into a glass cup that has sliced apples inside.

So smart. It’s important to keep smart friends around. The good news is that I’ve been a lot more patient with my kids, which I think they kind of needed as they struggle with the end of summer and mixed feelings about going back to school. The bad news is that patience is hard guys, lol. And usually it means by the end of the day I need a nice glass of  . . . you know, anything.


Enter my new best friend, Caramel Apple Sangria. Because you know that I don’t just do caramel apples as a caramel apple. I do Caramel Apple Poke Cake. I do Caramel Apple Cobbler. I do Caramel Apple Milkshake. And now this! You guys, it’s so good. I “tested” the various ratio options when it comes to the liquor you put in this, deciding just how much caramel vodka and just how much apple liquor was needed to make the most caramely appley taste and we have a winner, friends!

And did I mention that this is only four ingredients? Awesome, right? So if you lose your patience with your kids, you are only four ingredients away from Caramel Apple Sangria. A few sips and then reset.

And you know what? Losing your patience with your kids is just a good lesson in teaching them humility. You just apologize and they get a good life lesson. And you get sangria. Win – win.

Caramel Apple Sangria

Serves: 6 servings
(tap # to scale)
Prep: 5 minutes
Total: 5 minutes
This Caramel Apple Sangria is only FOUR ingredients and it is delicious! It tastes just like a caramel apple! Such an easy white wine sangria recipe!


  • 1/2 cup caramel vodka
  • 1 cup apple liquor see note
  • 750 ml white wine I used a sparkling white
  • 2 green apples cut up see note


  • Combine all of the ingredients in a large pitcher.
  • Chill and serve.


If you decide to double this recipe, and I really think that you should, you don't need to double the number of apples in it. It will still be delicious with two.
I used Apple Pucker, but there are lots of great apple liquors on the market and any will do!

    Going to try making this for Saturday. How far in advance can you make it, especially if using sparkling white? Thanks!

    • Lisa Longley says

      I honestly would make it right before the party, because the apples won’t hold up.

  2. Jona Kandarian says

    Me and my mom will be making this for thanksgiving! She loves this idea! Thank you for sharing all your recipes and making it so easy to follow!! Hope you and all your readers have a GREAT THANKSGIVING ???? ????

    • Lisa Longley says

      I hope you both love it!

  3. Karen says

    You keep mentioning sparkling white barefoot and several comments have tried to narrow you down on which barefoot. There are so many. Barefoot what? Prosecco? Be specific please.
    Thank you.

    • Lisa Longley says

      It is literally a sparkling white from Barefoot brand. It’s possible that they don’t sell it anymore. Any sweet white will work great in this though. And if the end result isn’t sweet enough you can add a little simple syrup or apple juice.

  4. Jo says

    Could someone who actually made this comment instead of “I CAN’T WAIT TO MAKE THIS”. why do people make those comments? Not helpful at all. No one cares if you PLAN to make it.

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hi Jo! I’m sorry you haven’t seen comments from people who have actually made it. I 100% get that frustration. You want to know it’s good before you invest in the ingredients. I have received comments on social media from people who have loved this recipe if that is helpful at all. That said, I actually love hearing from my readers, no matter what they have to say. And often it is just them telling me they are excited.

  5. Denise Dircks says

    How many servings does this make?

    • Lisa Longley says

      6 servings

  6. Sandi says

    Is it ok to mix the apples with “FRESH FRUIT” to keep them from browning as I would like to mix this 1 day before serving?

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m not sure Sandi, I’ve never used that. If you try it let me know how it goes!

    I have made this the last two Thanksgivings and will be doing it again this year. It’s delicious! I follow the recipe exactly as written. I’ve never doubled it, but might do that this year.

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m so glad to hear that, Rachel!

  8. Lori says

    Can I use gala apples ? Green are too tart for me .

    • Lisa Longley says

      For sure!

    Just made a double pitcher of this caramel apple sangria for dinner guests tonight and it is gone! It was so easy to make, it was light, not overly sweet and absolutely delicious. I used salted caramel vodka because I just happened to have it on hand. We also used Barefoot Moscato Spumante sparkling wine. This recipe is a definite keeper! Thank you for sharing!

    • Lisa Longley says

      Ooo, now I am going to need to try it with the salted caramel. I’m so happy you liked it!
