SRC: Apple Sangria

It's time for another Secret Recipe Club reveal!

Secret Recipe Club

This month I received Cafe Lynnylu. Her pictures are stunning!
It was really fun to look at all the different recipes and beautiful photos. After browsing I decided on Apple Sangria (originally from Cooking Light).  I love sangria and was excited to try this recipe- perfect for our Saturday evening cocktail. Ron and I really liked this recipe and the only this I would modify is to leave out the cloves because they were a bit strong for me. Thank you for a delicious new cocktail! Check out the other Secret Recipe Club participants below!


3 cups chopped macitosh apples
1/4 honey
1/2 cup apple cider liqure (or apple snapps)
3-4 cloves
2 cinnimon sticks
2 sliced of fresh ginger, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch pieces
1 large orange, quartered
1 lime, quartered
1 bottle (750 ml) Syrah or red wine of choice
1/2 cup club soda
Apple sliced for garnish


Combine first 9 ingredeints in a pitcher. Refridgerate about 4 hours. Strain wine mixture and discard solids. Pour about 2/3 cup sangria over ice. Garnish with an apple slice. Makes 4-6 servings.


  1. This sounds refreshing, and now I'm thinking about dropping the club soda and sipping a warm mugful.

  2. Interesting apple twist on a citrus classic. Nicely done!

  3. LOVE the apples! And I agree with SeattleDee, a warm mugful sounds wonderful! Most Excellent!!

  4. I'd say that's a perfect way to spend a Saturday night! Great SRC choice!

  5. sounds like a great fall choice too. when it warms up I will have to try this

  6. This sounds refreshing! Sangria is so much fun. Great SRC selection.

  8. Hi Ashley,
    Thanks for the delicious version of my apple sangria! I'm so happy your family liked it! I agree-cloves can be overpowering and I would probably use just one or leave them out completely.

  9. I am not a big wine drinker, but I'm thinking I would really enjoy this sangria!! What a great choice!

  10. I love different flavored sangria, sounds wonderful!
