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!

    I’m assuming you used a sweet white wine like Riesling or Moscato?

    • Lisa Longley says

      I used a sparkling white. I just had a reader comment that they used a riesling and it over powered the flavor and when they used the sparkling white it was perfect.

      • Marilyn says

        Do you recall the brand/type of sparkling white?

        • Lisa Longley says

          I used Barefoot, Marilyn

          • Marilyn says

            Thank you. Do you recall if you used the Pinot Grigio Champagne or Moscato Spumonte?

          • Lisa Longley says

            Hi Marilyn, I didn’t use either. I used a sparkling white from Barefoot.

  2. Stephanie C says

    I’ve been holding onto this recipe for a couple weeks and i’m finally getting the goodies to try it tonight! If we like it we may use it for Thanksgiving, and maybe even use red and green apples and make it for Christmas!! :-)

    • Lisa Longley says

      I LOVE the red and green idea! I hope you guys love it!

  3. Mehndi says

    I just made this for a fall bridal shower! I’m going to make it again today for a family dinner!! BUT I did have to make a slight change. I cannot drink schnapps; makes me sick as h*ll! So I got a bottle of Apple Jack. I tried a small version to taste it before making a whole batch. (Because I honestly don’t like brandy, but I wanted a little more alcohol with an apple punch!) It was way too strong for me! (I like a nice symbiotic sangria! I don’t want to “taste” the alcohol.) SO I used a cup of apple cider in place of the liqueur and a shot or so of the apple jack. That worked perfectly! Not clear and pretty, but pretty amazing! (it was a “redneck chic” shower, so it was going into mason jars anyway. Who cares about the color?) And since it was a bridal shower I used a bottle of prosecco! :D Needless to say, there was NONE left by the end of the shower!

    Thanks for this amazing QUICK sangria!!

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hahahaha!! You crack me up! Yeah, I’m enough years out from college that I can drink apple pucker, but if I had tried it in my 20s not so much! And I tried it with the Apple Jack too! It was good but definitely had more of a boozy taste to it. I love your solution and thanks for the laugh!

  5. Julie says

    How much white wine in the Caramel Apple Sangria?

    • Lisa Longley says

      750 ml

  6. Beth says

    So I know you keep saying apple pucker but they also make an apple vodka. Have you or anyone tried that?

    • Lisa Longley says

      I haven’t tried the apple vodka, but I tried apple whisky and it was too strong of an alcohol flavor. So that would be my only concern with the vodka.

  7. Glenn says

    What kind of white wine, or sparkling wine?

    • Lisa Longley says

      I used a white sparkling wine, but any white you love will be great!

  8. Therese says

    I plan to make this to enjoy all the trick or treaters come. And if I like it well enough I’m going to make a punch bowl of it for Thanksgiving too! sounds amazing!

    • Lisa Longley says

      I hope you love it Therese!

    If the apples sit, do they brown?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Not as quickly as sitting out in the air, but I wouldn’t make this the day before

  10. Vanessa says

    Thanks for sharing! How long does the mix keep?

    • Lisa Longley says

      This is one that I would make right before serving because of the apples.
