Spiced Caramel Apple Cider




Introduction: Spiced Caramel Apple Cider

About: I am powered by sugar and rainbows! For realz!

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

This is the amounts I used to make 2 glasses of hot apple cider, but you will have to alter the recipe to taste :)

  • 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!
