Sparkling Apple Pie In A Glass

October 18, 2023

Fall is one of the best seasons in Missouri. The change in weather, celebrations with friends and family, and spiced wine-tails make this season enjoyable. We took one of our favorite celebration desserts and made it into a wine-tail.

Sparkling Apple Pie In A Glass with pumpkin in the background


3 oz. Apple Cider

¾ oz. Cinnamon Schnapps

1 tbsp Cinnamon Simple Syrup

3 oz. Sparkling Wine (we used Stone Hill’s Blanc de Blancs)

(optional) Cinnamon Sugar



  1. In a small sauce pot, add the water and cinnamon sticks. Bring to a boil.
  2. Simmer for 10 minutes, and remove cinnamon sticks.
  3. Bring cinnamon water back to a boil, add sugar, and stir until sugar is dissolved.
  4. Place cinnamon simple syrup aside.
  5. In a shaker, add ice, apple cider, cinnamon schnapps, and cinnamon simple syrup. Shake until well-chilled.
  6. Use apple to rim glass and dip rim into cinnamon sugar mixture.
  7. Strain mixture into glass.
  8. Top with sparkling wine
  9. Garnish with an apple slice.


This cinnamon-forward dessert in a glass is the perfect drink for a cool fall day. Cheers!
