Spiced Apple Butter Sangria

  • Author: Molly
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 8 servings 1x


This Spiced Apple Butter Sangria is full of fall flavor and takes minutes to put together! It is an easy, make-ahead cocktail option that serves a crowd, making it perfect for the holiday season!



For the Spiced Simple Syrup:

  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 star anise
  • 2 cloves

For the Sangria:

  • The spiced simple syrup
  • 4 oz apple butter
  • 1 standard bottle of dry white wine (I like sauvignon blanc for this)
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 2 apples, sliced
  • 2 pears, sliced
  • 1 cup frozen cranberries
  • 1 standard bottle of prosecco
  • Additional cinnamon sticks, for serving


For the Spiced Simple Syrup:

  1. Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
  2. Simmer for a minute or so or until the sugar is completely dissolved.
    Add the spices, remove the pan from the heat, and allow the syrup to cool to room temperature (this allows the spices to steep in the syrup as it cools).

For the Sangria:

  1. To a large pitcher or punch bowl, add the spiced simple syrup and apple butter. Whisk to combine.
  2. Whisk in the white wine until well combined.
  3. Add in the sliced orange, apples, and pears and stir to combine.
  4. Refrigerate the sangria for at least 1 hour (and up to 8 hours) before serving.
    Just before serving, add the frozen cranberries and the prosecco. Stir to combine and then serve garnished with additional cinnamon sticks, if preferred.
