Make this festive Blackberry Apple Spooky Sangria recipe with spiralized apples to spook your guests! Or substitute juice to make it non-alcoholic for kids.

My name is Katrina, and I’m addicted to kitchen gadgets.

I have egg separators, ice cream sandwich makers, cherry pitters, pickle forks, and enough spatulas to last me several lifetimes of use. Most tools I keep around because they don’t take up a lot of space.

I also have things like shaved-ice machines, donut makers, and spiralizers that do take up a lot of space.

I was looking for a new use for my spiralizer because I cannot bear to part with it even though I only use it about once every two years. We’ve been through 3 moves together, and I have faithfully packed it up and found a new space for it every time.

Blackberry Apple Spooky Sangria

Don’t those long spiralized apple slices creep you out?! I LOVE them! What a killer way to up your sangria-making game this Halloween. You’re going to need five simple ingredients:

  1. red wine
  2. cranberry juice
  3. apples
  4. blackberries

I also made some spooky black ice to keep things cool. If you want to make creepy black ice cubes, add a few drops of black food coloring to grape juice the day before you serve the sangria.

Just a few drops of McCormick black food coloring added to dark juice makes perfectly festive black ice.

For the kids, I threw some black ice into plastic beakers along with some colorful sports drinks. I love the ombre effect! Of course, you could substitute any dark grape or berry juice for the wine if you wanted to make the whole pitcher kid-friendly.

This Green Lagoon Punch recipe is another creepy alternative that my kids are requesting this month. Strawberry Milk Bubble Tea is spooky enough to serve this Halloween also. Make it with orange milk for a festive twist.


Made with only two ingredients, readers love our Valentine Layered Drinks For 2.

If you are serving this Blackberry Apply Spooky Sangria wine pitcher in mixed company with kiddos, I recommend you writing, “Not Safe For Kids” on a piece of bright tape or paper and attaching to the pitcher or handle (and of course, keeping out of reach). Little ones will want to get their hands on this spooky drink.

An awesome use for your spirializer! Make long strips of apples into this Blackberry Apple Spooky Sangria Recipe
