Apple Cider and Spooky Cranberry Cocktails! Oh man how I love apple cider. Obviously it’s delicious and in high demand over Thanksgiving, but I love it all year long. So when Eckert’s had me and my gal pal out to the farm to pick apples, I was ecstatic that red delicious were among the apples ready to be picked…because they are perfect for this. Oh and we had a blast picking pumpkins as well. We used the apples to make a small thing of cider out of it and a few other cocktails for the perfect spooky and autumnal drinks.

Now, I made a lot of recipes when we got home from the farm and I am so lucky that I had my BFF with me to help make all this magic. We made everything from Pumpkin Maple Poptarts, Apple Cider Donuts, to these delicious drinks. There is the Pomegranate Cranberry Sparkler Cocktail and this Homemade Spiced Apple Cider. Or you could even mix the sparkler and cider together for a truly dreamy cocktail. Perfect for the fall.

I made these recipes as Halloween recipes, but they can for sure be made as any fall party or even Thanksgiving. I hope you love them as much as I do!

Ingredients:

  • 8 red delicious apples, cored and sliced
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 teaspoons cloves
  • 2 teaspoons allspice
  • 10 cups water
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

How to make Apple Cider:

  1. Start making your apple cider by putting all the ingredients (minus the brown sugar) into a large pot on the stove set to a boil. After about an hour, add brown sugar. Cover and allow to boil for at least another hour, or until the apples are completely mushy when you touch it with a wooden spoon.
  2. Remove cinnamon sticks. Strain the apples from the juice into a jar. Save your apple mush for an easy apple sauce.

How to make Apple Pom Drink:

  1. In a glass pour 1/3 of the glass full with apple cider and fill the rest with the Pomegranate Cranberry Sparkler. Enjoy!
