So here in the desert this last week the temps were in the low 90’s (whoo hoo!) and I swear everyone was wearing jeans and some were even wearing cardigans! Ha! By September we will take those 90 degrees and pretend like it’s 65 degrees…no problem. Today I want to share with you a DELICIOUS recipe for caramel apple cider. If you don’t want to make a cup, head over to Starbucks because they make the best caramel apple cider. I’m also going to show you how to make cups by using apples. You will impress your friends and they will think you are the next Martha Stewart!! It’s all about the presentation, right?
Caramel Apple Cider Recipe:
1 cup apple juice
1 Tablespoon Torani Caramel Syrup
Dash of cinnamon
1 cinnamon stick
Warm up individually or double the recipe and warm up in a saucepan.
Now it’s time to make the APPLE CUPS:
1. Take a knife and cut a circle around the core.
2. Do you have a melon baller? It’s one of the best kitchen utensils! Using a melon baller will make this project a cinch to do. If you don’t have a melon baller you can use a spoon. Carve out the apple but make sure you don’t make the apple to thin or the juice can drip out.
3. As soon as you have carve the inside of the apple, brush a little lemon juice on the inside so it doesn’t brown.
4. Pour your cider into the apple cup and enjoy!
Even though the temps are still in the 90’s at my house we are going to be drinking this cider every night in September PRETENDING it’s in the 60’s! It’s that good.
I LOVE using the Torani syrups to make my beverages taste amazing. If you like Diet Coke (or Coke) and coconut, you have to try my DIRTY DIET COKE recipe! It’s so tasty!
