If you are a sucker for fruity sangria wine drinks but can also handle a little kick in your cocktail, then you've got to try Delish's tasty Fireball Sangria recipe. Served chilled in a large pitcher, the beverage is packed with flavor from the cinnamon whiskey and great for summertime or fall sipping. It's such an easy sangria recipe and will totally impress all your friends.
Below are the necessary ingredients for this cocktail recipe:
1 granny smith apple, chopped
1/3 cup Fireball Whiskey
3/4 cup apple juice or apple cider
1 orange, chopped
1 blood orange, chopped
1 cup dry red wine
First, you need to soak your diced apples in the cinnamon whiskey for at least 30 minutes. This allows them to absorb all the delicious Fireball flavor. Then, pour the apples and whiskey into a pitcher and add all of the other ingredients. Watch how easy the drink recipe is to put together in the video below with minimal prep time.
After you've stirred all of your ingredients together, cool your concoction off in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving. If possible, it's best to cool the beverage for two to three hours because the longer you allow the drink to chill, the more time the fresh fruit, wine, and cinnamon flavors have to combine.
Despite being simple to prepare, the fresh fruit adds a fancy touch to the drink, so you're sure to impress all your friends and family when you whip out a yummy pitcher of this stuff. Per the video above, we recommend serving your cinnamon sangria in mason jars because, well, everything tastes better in a mason jar. Maybe consider adding a tasty cinnamon stick garnish to enhance that Fireball flavor? It's a perfect summer drink, but the cinnamon is also an excellent flavor for fall!
