Bubbly, fall-inspired, and fun!  Sparkling fall sangria is the perfect combination of fall flavors, sparkling wine, and sweet cider best served out of a pumpkin for the most amount of enjoyment.



Sparkling Fall Sangria

  • 1 750ml bottle sparkling wine or prosecco
  • 1 cup bourbon
  • 4 cups apple cider
  • 3 1/2 cup soda water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • Optional:
    • caramel and cinnamon sugar for garnish
    • 1 large carving pumpkin
    • 1 beverage tap


Sparkling Fall Sangria

  1. Make the syrup. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, water, and spices. Bring to just a simmer, stirring to melt the sugar, remove from heat.
  2. Make the sangria. In a large pitcher or beverage dispenser, slowly pour in the sparkling wine, fall spiced simple syrup, soda water, apple cider, apple cider, and lemon juice.
  3. Optional garnish: rim the glass with caramel then dip into cinnamon sugar.

How to Tap a Pumpkin

  1. Measure the tap. Trace where you’ll put the tap on the pumpkin and cut the top off the pumpkin.
  2. Remove the seeds. Remove the seeds and ‘guts’ of the pumpkin. Scrape the inside of the pumpkin well and wash it out so the tap won’t get clogged with pumpkin.
  3. Cut the hole for the tap. Using a small knife, cut the hole for the tap slightly smaller than the actual tap. It will be more work to push the tap through but you want it to be a tight fit so it doesn’t leak.
  4. Screw the tap in. Push the tap through the hole, tightly screwing the washer on the inside of the pumpkin.
  5. Serve. Fill with sparkling fall sangria and serve!
