We shared with you weeks ago that we love Fall! Here in Texas we are starting to wake to cool crisp temperatures and by the afternoon the weather is just right for sitting on our back deck or next to a fire in the chimenea with a smooth fall drink in hand. The beverage we are sharing with you today tastes like fall. That is the best way to describe it! It is a sangria with hints of cinnamon and a smooth warm finish from Zaya Rum. We loved our summer sangria recipe we shared with you, so we are excited to share a twist on a sangria recipe that is Fall in a wine glass. What could be better?
True to our motto, the ingredients are easy, tasty and fresh. The fresh fruit of apples and pears with a hint of citrus orange compliments the rum and cinnamon nicely. We used Diet Sprite in our sangria to cut down on calories and reduce the sweetness. This recipe tends to be very sweet, so you may want to choose a white wine that is not too sweet for your sangria, such as a Chardonnay.
Zaya Fall Sangria
- 1 apple
- 1 pear
- 1 orange
- cinnamon sticks
- 1 bottle of white wine
- 1/2 cup of Zaya rum
- 4 cups of lemon lime soda

Once you take the first sip, you will feel like you are curled up next to a toasty fire in your favorite blanket enjoying the scent of Fall. What are your Fall favs?
