This year, our gathering was small, just the 6 of us. Our travel plan to join the rest of the family up north was canceled at the last minute. Nevertheless, our dinner was filled with laughter, joy, and most importantly delicious food.
The Caramel Apple sangria was the highlight of our night and here is how I made it.
6 cups Apple Cider
6 medium apples cored and diced
2 cups caramel vodka
1 750ml bottle of Chardonnay
In a large pitcher, combine the wine, the vodka, the apple cider, and the apples. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours before serving.
For dessert, I made my pecan pie, Baklava, marshmallow delight, and pumpkin pie.
I always add my own twist to any recipe and that’s why my pumpkin pie is special.
1 9-inch pie crust
1 can pumpkin
½ cup half and half
½ cup condensed milk
½ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp pumpkin spice
½ tsp all-spice
¼ cup brown sugar
1 tbs caramel vodka
In a large bowl, whisk all the ingredients until smooth. Pour into crust.
Heat oven to 425 degrees F, bake the pie for 15 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 350F, then bake for 35 minutes.
I hope that you are ready to celebrate the holiday and make great memories with your loved ones!

We don’t have this celebration in my culture but it doesn’t mean that I can’t prepare this recipe for another one. I like it, it looks delish. – Paolo
Thanks so much, Paolo, you can definitely have it another time.
I always make hot apple cider at the holidays but have been trying to think of a different drink. I’ll have to try your caramel apple sangria as it looks amazing!
Try and let me know, Stephanie!
You had me at sangria!! I love finding a fun holiday recipe! Love!!
Same for me, Neely. I will share my Christmas drink earlier!
I have a question. What would you use instead of canned pumpkin for pumpkin pie? Japanese supermarkets don’t sell canned pumpkins and it is hard to make pies here. But I want a pie as I long to taste real pumpkin pie.
The taste might be different, I have done sweet potatoes pie the same way.
Oh my gosh, this is getting me right into the festive mood. the sangria sounds duper yum, but the pumpkin pie sounds well good x
We enjoyed both equally!
I love your table setting! These are some awesome recipes, I love sangria.
Thank you, Natalie!
The sangria and the pumpkin pie sound wonderful. I wish I’d come to yours for thanks giving!!
There’s always next year, Melanie!
This looks delicious! I love how it turned out, this is something I would try out.
You should try it, Luna!
They both look fantastic! I’d love to try that drink.
Go for it!
I would absolutely love to make this myself and my friends. It sounds like it’d be delicious. I just know they’d like it.
I am sure that they will.

They look so yummy! I would love to try it all!
Go for it, Risa!
