Menu Description: "Drink in the passions of Spain! A delightful mix of Sutter Home Cabernet Sauvignon, Shakka Apple Liqueur, Dole pineapple juice, Ocean Spray cranberry juice, and grenadine. Garnished with maraschino cherry, orange, lime and fresh apple."

The menu description for this quenching cocktail specifies brand names that the restaurant uses to create this drink. For the best copycat Applebee's red apple sangria recipe, I suggest you use the same brands. However, if you must substitute with other brands, I don't suspect anyone will care. I certainly won't, and I promise not to tell anyone your secret. If you can't find Shakka brand apple liqueur, use any sour apple flavored liqueur. If you don't have Sierra Mist lemon-lime soda, you can use Sprite or 7-Up.

I love the Applebee's Sangria and this recipe is super close. I want to make an entire pitcher and noticed some people have.

We had this drink to celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary and fell in love with it. Now I'm going to make.
