The taste of fall in a delicious Caramel Apple Spritzer cocktail.
When you think of fall, what flavors and recipes do you think of? For me, it’s pumpkin spice and caramel apple. Being from Iowa, we would look forward to visiting pumpkin patches and apple orchards in the fall to pick those crisp apples while the kids would pick out their favorite pumpkin to decorate for Halloween. It’s a tradition that my family always looks forward to.
We would usually spend an entire day at the apple orchards in Iowa, enjoying the season and the numerous activities for the kids too. They had everything from corn pools (swimming around in a pool full of corn), corn mazes, petting farms, face painting and so much more.
I typically would come home with several bags of my favorite varieties of apples to eat fresh and create delicious recipes with. These would vary from Dutch apple pie to cocktail creations like our Apple Pie Sangria and now this Caramel Apple Spritzer.
This recipe is a delicious combination of flavors that will remind you of the warm and cozy fall months where the weather starts to turn cooler, the trees change colors and all those fresh apples come into season! If you’re looking for a new recipe to make for Thanksgiving, this is a great idea too. It’s the perfect mix of fall flavors that your guests will enjoy. I love the way Mirassou Chardonnay brings out the buttery caramel and fruity apple notes in this cocktail, as well. I usually grab my Mirassou at Target or even order on Amazon.
