I love apple cider. It is a wonderful winter drink. I particularly like Starbucks Spiced Caramel Apple Cider, so I thought I would try to replicate the recipe! It is really easy to mix up and serve, so there is no reason not to spice up your apple cider this Holiday!
Step 1: Ingredients
- Apple Cider (pick one without anything added to it)
- Caramel Sauce
- Cinnamon Simple Syrup
- Extra Cinnamon sticks if you desire
Step 2: Mix
- 3 Cups Apple Cider
- 4 Tbsp Simple Syrup
- 3 Tbsp Caramel (I measured this so I could give everyone an idea, but go ahead and just squirt some in)
Step 3: Heat It Up!
I decided to heat it up on the stove, but I've done it both in the microwave and on stove-top now and didn't think either way was necessarily better than the other.
You may see what looks like floaty flakes all over in your drink, that is the caramel. I thought I could cook them out, but they seemed to stay. No biggie.
Time to serve! I suggest topping it with whipped cream and more caramel sauce!
